the 1.0.2 app pop up says dont fly without the lock due to the props might get loose and fly out during flight, they should be out next week.

i have flown a couple time and hand tightening seems ok. will u guys risk flying the i1?

the weather here in hk is so freaking nice i wanna fly!

No kidding. I'm in Discovery Bay and want to take it out for a spin but nervous as hell right now.

Can anyone provide a picture of what an actual propeller lock looks like. Is this some kind of actual locking mechanism or something else?

Pardon the stupid question, but aren't the props self-tightening, as with the Phantom?
 
The ability of the strong motors to decelerate very quickly apparently can loosen your props if they're not tightened enough in the first place.

Are you in Discovery Bay California? I live here also and would like to meet you..

The prop locks are actually a very simple design but I'm not sure how hard it is to be constantly taking them on and off as personally I break my Inspire down after every flight and pack it into it's case for same keeping. Ill try to find a pic. I saw one earlier
