How to Fix Loose Quad Drone Props

Simple fix for lose drone props




If your drone props are loose, chances are after a hard landing you may be missing one or two. Even though props are not that expensive, if you lose one and don't have a spare your flying time is over until you can get another set. 

If you use aftermarket props, this can get expensive especially if you need to order them and have to pay for shipping each time.

This is one of the simplest ways we have found to keep your props nice and tight. Before each flight gently push down on your props to make sure they are tight against your motor. If you feel they push down a little each time it is a sign your props are getting lose and its time to do this mod.

Props that ride up the shaft can cause more vibration. This can lead to premature motor failure.



The Glue Prop Mod - No, we are not going to super glue the props onto the shaft. This would make removing damaged props a lot harder.

Instead, we are going to take some super glue and pour a little bit on paper plate, or lid to a milk cartoon or anything else you are going to throw away when done. Then take a piece of wire, needle, paper clip or anything that fits inside the prop hole without forcing it. It needs to slide right in without any resistance.

Dip the end of your wire, or needle into the liquid super glue and carefully insert it into the hole of your prop. Spin the prop around to evenly coat the inside of the hole. If there is any excess glue on the end of your prop, wipe it off. Repeat with the other 3 props and set them aside for a few hours to give the glue a chance to cure.

Next time you install your props, they should fit a lot more snug.

If after you reinstall your props and your drone does not fly, you probably have your props on backwards.

Carefully study the picture in your manual and make sure your props point exactly the same way before you install your props.

  20. Return 2 Passion have personal experience with the quest for success, and the good that this pursuit can bring. I offer Life Coaching sessions to help clients achieve their monetary, social, and spiritual goals. You can make a lot of money and have a balanced life that includes rich and satisfying relationships, a great wealth of friends and a rewarding sense of purpose, which is the truest treasure of all. Coaching also works well with my clients who “graduate” from therapy and need tune-up sessions to maintain their focus, balance and inner peace. When I take on a coaching client we meet face-to-face for the first several sessions to build rapport, at which time they take a battery of psychological tests. These test are the most efficient way for me to get to know you quickly. All future sessions are conducted over the phone. Finally, I work with corporations presenting training and seminars on, Peak Performance, Time Mastery, Team Dimensions, and Treatment of Mental Health. My seminars can be tailored to your specific needs and utilize the Dis C assessment tools developed by Ins cape Publishing.
