    I was just wondering if I painted the spare props on my remote control helicopter and put all of them on would it be off balance

    I haven't flown helis in many years, but even my recollection would tell me that if you paint them, they should be completely balanced (again). How big a heli are you talking about and what kind? Coaxial, single rotor fixed pitch or CP heli? A tiny little coaxial heli is less likely to be affected by an even paint job. "Spare" blades are usually only supplied with the smaller helis. And being spares, tells me that you haven't balanced them yet anyway, so yes, balance them after you paint them.
