    Prop Lock Slop - Could Be Cause of Some Crashes

    This is worth checking to avoid losing a prop, and your flybaby! As part of preflight check I have a routine that "may" have averted a near future crash. Without going over my entire preflight checklist, I'll cut to it and share what I found. One step, of just one of the Prop prechecks prior...

    Flight #5, Crash #1

    Flew in the yard yesterday to test the prop guards. Recently I've been working to get familiar with the menus, so I don't miss something important, and so that I am able to find important things in a hurry when I need to. I can fly the drone fine, but get confused easily when something...

    Mavic Pro Propeller Cage testing with 360 camera mount

    I'm flying in a close quarters situation soon (not people) and decided to get the Prop Cage setup for my Mavic. I can see why they're no so common but I admit they do have their use. Thought I'd share a few of my thoughts and tests in case anyone was interested. I regularly fly with a Samsung...

    Cheap Prop Storage

    Cheap Mavic Prop Storage This may be of interest to someone out there. I was looking for an inexpensive prop storage solution for home and in my carry bag. I carry two complete sets with me when I’m out and the spares stay at home. I came across some Rubbermaid containers at a local Dollar...
