DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

After a battle to get the MOV file off the camera here is yesterday mornings prop failure. The wet moor is very soft which was a blessing as it gave a soft landing but a bit to the right and it could have been a splash down

Camera is a Panasonic FS3. Some very harsh vibration going on compared to other times i';ve had the camera on it and it generally does not sound happy all flight.

Gimabl is an RCT two axis which sometimes seems to not level very well, not sure if it';s lack of servo power or the Naza gains yet

 :hmm: Here';s a thought.  Do plastic propellers get brittle in cold weather and are unable to stand up to the strain?
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

I think it';s a factor for sure. Just checking things over a bit more i think both rear motors now have bent shafts or prop adaptors.

Time for an upgrade
