I tend to keep my Inspire 1 on a benchtop, with props and proplocks on, with gimbal and camera on and with the landing gear down (not flattened into travel mode). In other words, I don't dis-assemble it and put it back in it's case at all. When I travel with it, I've made a foam cradle which holds the aircraft, and softly holds the camera and gimbal so it can't flop around while travelling in the car. My question is - Am I doing the Inspire 1 any harm by doing this? The reason I ask is everyone seems to talk about taking props off and travel mode etc. Also, I've noticed that when people talk about cases etc for the Inspire 1, they always talk about "storage for 3 sets of props" or similar. I have always wondered - Is there something wrong with me using one set of props continuously? Why would there be a necessity to carry 3 spare sets of props? My original set of props seem fine after 6 hours of flying time.
