Does anyone think that putting a nice finish on the props would make any difference at all to any flight parameters such as efficiency, noise level, etc?

What I mean is, on the stock props there is evidence of the moulding process, with seams, as well as raised writing and directional indicators.

Is there any point in taking some fine sandpaper to the props to make them completely smooth? Has anyone done this and did you notice any difference?

I honestly don’t think it will, but maybe worth an experiment?

Here is a pic of the features I am talking about.

I would think the smoother the prop the more efficient & quiter they would run.  You'll have to mod a set & do a comparison to see if it makes significant difference.  Be sure to ensure they remain reasonably well balanced.
