They do......I have spoken to my dealer (UK) and they are fully aware of the situation and have confirmed they will send them straight out upon receipt.I contacted Helipal and they had no idea about this. You'd think dealers would know about it by now..
I have received prop locks from my dealer, UAV Direct (Texas). I did not know anything out replacement props being sent as well? Is this true, should I be getting a set of replacement props?
Wrong! (Not you...your dealer). I have had confirmation from three separate dealers (UK) that quick release props and adapters will be offered foc once received in mid April.According to my dealer, only new buyers of an Inspire will get the quick release props. Not if you already own one
My dealer (Multicopter Warehouse) has posted on Facebook that DJI is sending the quick disconnect props and adapters FREE for ALL previously purchased Inspires and they expect them to arrive mid-April at the earliest. FDJI has decided that the original props for the Inspire are just not a good design and the E800 props are the way to go because they do not come loose during flight.According to my dealer, only new buyers of an Inspire will get the quick release props. Not if you already own one
It's not that they are a 'poor' design it's that the new ones are 'better' (kind of). It means that DJI can market two platforms (E800 system and the Inspire) and only need to tool up for one type of prop/adapter. It also gives them the revenue of a 'consumable' item since even if you do not crash or damage the props they will still need replacing after circa 200 flights...... More money for DJI and less manufacturing variations !!If it's true that DJI are supplying the new props free of charge because the old ones are a poor design, can someone then tell me why the f*#k they're still selling the original props on their own website?? I Ordered 2 sets last week!
With the prop locks, they don't fall off much. So maybe 'poor design' is not entirely accurate. They are definitely inferior to the E800 design, in my opinion (apparently DJI agrees). In the long run, the E800 props look like a better option for everyone.If it's true that DJI are supplying the new props free of charge because the old ones are a poor design, can someone then tell me why the f*#k they're still selling the original props on their own website??

Then how do they screw down on the posts? Different posts!
