Hi, it looks great. Just a safety reminder, we don't recommend modification on the propellers because it may affect the performance of your drone. Enjoy and fly safe.

Altering the natural characteristics of the DJI manufactured prop is not a good thing.  I highly recommend not flying these.  Got to agree with DJI Paladin.

Although i do not condone doing this, I have modified heli props in exactly the same way, not 1 problem, also I have used these on my mavic pro already for a few weeks now, it still flys great, no vibrations at all.

Thankyou all , so long as you dont go mad on the spray and get an even coat it shouldn't affect the aerodynamics of the rotors.....

It could , that's why you need an even coat, I powder coat & hydro dip for a living also do a bit of wet painting so I have a good idea what is needed. also tested while hovering & in sport mode, no problems with vibrations . I had more problems with the low noise props, the gimbal was shaking all over when I first used those.

I like them! How do they look in motion? Similar to the LED ones (which I guess are not recommended by DJI either!)

they look great, obviously you cant really see them at a distance but up close you can make out the rotor disc..
