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.
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. AllI'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.
Yessir. You'd be surprised at how out of balance some of them are. The originals that came with my H were pretty good; the spares I bought (OEM) were about 50/50.check the balance of your props, a prop balancer is very cheap to buy or make yourself.
Yes, this is where it will wear the fastest. The heat energy from the motor is directly transfered from the shaft to the hub. I personally haven't bothered with balancing my props because it A. Flies wonderfully as is. B. Props only have a minor part in multirotor flight anymore, as long as the mold incorporates the blades INTO the hub it really doesn't matter as your GPS will keep everything in balance. On some custom builds I've had to do this because cheaply made props aren't stamped to the inside of the hub. It's just two layers put together....This is why the prop flew into two pieces on max throttle. These props are good coming from China.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.
