Could come off during flight. Prop locks next week. The craft is awesome thoHello,
Don't own an Inspire as or yet. Was a little afraid to be the first kid on the block
I see reference to "prop locks".
Does the Inspire not not have self tightening props?
What is the need for prop locks?
The Phantom does not have the same propellers. The Phantom has 9" props and the Inspire has 13" props. The ones on the Inspire have double the sweep area of the Phantom's, and are much more massive and therefore contain more spinning inertia.The Phantom has the same propellers and I have not heard of this problem.
All of you: please be aware that Loctite and plastic do not mix well. While the Inspire has props that contain some CF reinforcement, they are for the most part plastic. Loctite, even the weaker blue version, will degrade plastic over time. So if you get any on the plastic part of the Inspire hub, you are taking a chance that the prop will fail, even with the new prop locks installed.Don't compound the problem with another issue that will be added on top of the prop fly-off issue. In my opinion, ensuring that the props are hand -tightened snug, and avoiding extreme maneuvers will make the chance of a fly-off astronomically small.
Plumbers tape maybe the best option. Although i1 prop hub and thread is all metal inside. Don't let it run down permatex medium strength blue. Apply with q tip hardly a drop. Tightens even better after after removing. But plumbers tape is the best i thinkAlthough Loktite has solvents that will soften plastic, this maybe a suitable product...
As long as you keep only a metal-to-metal contact, not a problem. However, applying it to these small threads at the flying location maybe a bit more problematic..especially if it is windy/cold...etc. If I was going to use a thread locking material, would prefer one that will not attack plasticPlumbers tape maybe the best option.
