Has anyone had success in using a hot glue gun to repair broken blades? Or is it a lost cause?
My my...definitely no on glue gun. I don't know if super glue has been tried, but please do not try glue. if you have a Typhoon H you should have received a couple spares. What happened, have a crash?
It was a slow motion crash. Lol first time trying to land it , zigged when I should have zagged. It tipped over while the blades were still spinning and it snapped a blade right at the hub. I have a Q500 4K. It did come with two sets of blades. The gluing would just be an experiment.
never use a blade that has broken and then you glued it back together it won't hold up and it's most likely out of balance , you are playing with danger , it's not worth a $7 blade to your $800 plus drone , remember a Q500 won't fly on 3 props it will fall out of the sky and there goes your nice camera ,not worth it .
I figured so. Thanks for replying.
your welcome , also you should check your blades befor every flight for chips and cracks .
Thanks for the advice. I do give it a visual preop check every time I take it out.
I would replace
Those props look like knockoffs, not genuine Yuneec OEM Blades. I wouldn't use them, IMHO.....
Thanks for the input. Much appreciated.
The loss of the bird is one thing but the possibility of personal injury is a real possibility. There is a lot of centrifugal force exerted on the blade. It could become a deadly flying object.
They work just fine....
Carbon props are awesome and border line dangerous if distance on landing and take off aren't respected but there strong as heck! Mines chop branches, survived concrete crashes an then some. Have had the same ones for a year now only use plastic ones if there's a lot of people around.
