Can someone tell me the reason why we need propeller locks on the Inspire 1? I thought they were self tightening? Is this the only DJI model that requires them? Do they effect propeller balance or are they too close to the motor to effect balance?
In very rare instances this may occur if the props are not tightened enough.... Many videos have been posted with very aggressive maneuvers being performed with no prop locks and the props stay on..... That being said, the prop locks are free and as I understand the new quick release props are being sent to all Inspire owners free of charge. I'll stick with he original Props as the new ones have to be changed out every 200 or so flights.
If you purchased direct from DJI you will (should) be sent them automatically.How are these new props being sent...to your dealer or to the owners? I don't think I've actually registered my I1 anywhere that I'm aware of....
If you purchased direct from DJI you will (should) be sent them automatically.
If you purchased from an authorised DJI dealer they have been made aware that free props and fittings are to be supplied to existing owners but you may need to get in contact with your dealer as some are better than others
Dealers should receive the quick release prop kits before the end of April.
Have you seen anything from DJI saying that? FPVNinjas.com hasnt heard about that, which is funny because @Bren contacted them.
Interesting. I have an email exchange with them... Time will tell.
What did the exchange say? Was it with Omar? Did they acknowledge they are going to send the new props?
Yep, I believe it was Sam.I have emails from Sam from FPV Ninjas saying they should be sending them out mid-month.
So do they throw thing out of balance? I spent a bit of time making my props balanced, will the securers undo this good work?
