Changing prop colors

Work on the new Workbench is not yet completely finished. With this update we add the option to choose the color of your propellers in the Workbench, to allow for even more visual customization. So what is this useful for? Of course it’s an extra option to make your drone look even more unique and show off in races. There’s also a very practical reason for doing this. As our community keeps growing, so are the number of pilots who use Liftoff to practice LOS flight (press “B” in Free Flight).  Using different colors for front and back propellers helps you get a better feel for direction.
