Dollar Tree to the rescue again. If the color doesn't do it for you then a black permanent marker (3/$) can make it darker.

In the past I have made wheels using blue gym mat foam.
I blackened them with a skin of black silicone applied with a stiff brush. Works well...

Thank's Dave.
They are working well.
When I was setting up FPV3b the 3mm stainless steel axle screws I had were not long enough.
No problem! I screwed the Nylon nut up tight, squashing the hub foam flat, and that made it fit just fine.

I have been making 3D printed bolts.
Here is a 6mmx50.

Excellent!
Can you make them with a 3mm hole to take an axle?
