Get me my propellers!

The 3545 propellers that I ordered for my upcoming 150 FPV racer didn't fit! What a big bummer! I suspected it would be tight when I got the frame and ordered a 3030 propeller right away that I really hope will work out. But it hasn't arrived yet.

Yesterday I tried to mount the 3545 propellers on the frame and it was very close a win. But not close enough, the rear props touches the standoffs ever so slightly and the front props hits both the standoff and the upper frame plate.

So now I'll have to wait. Or try to cut them down by a millimeter. But I suspect the result of the latter will be so-so, since it can be quite hard to balance a propeller of this size properly.
