    I just opened my phantom 3 professional.
    It's the W323A. All the motors are silver.
    It has the stickers for black and silver. I thought that the bolts on top were 2 black and 2 silver. Maybe a stupid question. Just figured I would ask before I fly.
    Thanks

    Yes the bolts where the props screw on are colour coded, black/silver. match that with your props.

    The bolts should all be silver. Two of them should have black dots on the top though. Like this:

    The other two should look like this:

    The colored tops indicate which props go where since two spin clockwise & two counter clockwise you need them in the correct order.
    Match the black or silver prop color (on top of center), hand tighten them and you should be set. :)
