    Is anyone else having a problem with their props getting sloppy at the connection to the hub and the motor? I replaced the four that I received as extras but the other two are still sloppy and must be replaced. Any input would be appreciated.

    Not at all. And I have over 80 flights on my Typhoon. But I will keep an eye on this.

    I'm wondering if maybe I got a bad batch of props that are way out of balance. I'm going to order some more props from Frank and see what happens.

    Could be. My props came well balanced. I can see the hubs possibly waring over time as they are just plastic, but we'll have to wait and see.

    If you have a prop balancer check all your props, I did 4 sets new out of the pkg. and the ones that came with the H. All
    of them were heavy on the side that the letter is on A & B I don't know why but they are all like that.
    This has been confirmed by other people. I balance all my props first out of the pkg. Check here Typhoon H Props out of balance

    Guys I have a method I use to put my props on. Some days I put the silver one all on then the black ones. Other days I reverse it and put the black ones on first. I always look for the rotation on the first one then the rest comes easy. If you have loose props then there is a good chance you have tried to force them on. You can hear them lock in. They are not loose ever. I hope this helps, fly safe.

    That's funny! The props are wearing out at the hubs. Inevitably it's going to happen. The question is how soon? I ordered new props and a balancer. Hopefully that cuts down the wear.

    Gary it should be months even a year or two before this happens. Are they so far out of balance. I don't think so.
