My (dangerous) tip for weathered propellers

Just want to share with you my tip for weathering propellers. - First of all, paint your prop and coat it with Future/Klir -Fit your prop on some dremel, be sure it is very tight - Apply a bit of oil paint colors and add a lot of mineral spirit ( it has to be wet). Apply on prop and spinner. - Push the button !! Dont forget to wear goggles and a mask: This can be DANGEROUS , dont hurt yourself ! And close the window, just in case you fly away -If you are still alive and still on the ground, you can observe these rather realistic patterns Enjoy, but remember: safety first ! cheers
