Sounds like you've got it the wrong way round bud. The nuts should loosen the same way the motor spins. If you hold the nut and spin the motor, the nuts should tighten.
How odd! I have never had an issue with self locking prop nuts, best things since sliced bread AFAIAK, still each to his own I guess.
Yep the reason why I went for CW and CCW motor lock nuts... but they only work when installed correctly unlike my dumbass put them on the wrong way round. Misconstruing thread direction for motor direction.Thats why you haven't had an issue.
Clockwise propeller rotation = Anti Clockwise nuts (black)Anti Clockwise propeller rotation = Clockwise nuts (silver)Both so that if the motors stop spinning the nuts tighten.
I had the same problem. Ditch the domes, but some cw nylocs and buy plenty of ccw halfnuts and use two!! Problem solved. Oh and yes ccw nylocs are rarer than lefthanded screwdrivers. I got quoted £75 to manufacture them from ccw 1m bar! I'd say less than 100.... 2 Half nuts all the way.
