Will smoothing the top side of FP rotors (HB v4) effect performance at all? I was thinking of adding a mono-cote film to the top of mine to help visualize them. I currently have a silver stripe on the ends but with any throttle on I can't see them. Kinda going for safety on this one. Any other suggestions.

What? The thing is so small that i would not think it would be so far away that you would need to worry about it.

You'd think Huh?
I would tend to agree w/you on this one. Untill today. Finally jumped into hover and am doing alright. However on occasion something doesn't go right. In short I dropped the heli on my feet today because it was bound and determined to knock my (safety) shades off. It would have been nice to see a nice bright disc comming at me. Easier to dodge. I am more concerned with the rubberneckers though. I AM a newbie.

If you're to damn blind to the heli itself coming your way, I don't think reflectors on the blades is going to help.

You could rig some flashing beacon strobe to alert the bystanders
