    Hi Guys I just made my own propeller lock from my 3D printer IMG_1177.JPG ....Im gong to use these one, until i get the original from DJI. It works great!! The propeller locks seem to do the job. Anyway it much better than no propeller locks....

    Nabil, do you have an ETA on the prop locks for Inspire 1 units bought from your store.
    Thanks.

    I would also love the STL file if possible :)

    Agree, any lock is better than no locks at all


    thanks, Dave

    I'd be interested in a tracker mount that you could mount on the arms to fit my rf-v16. two pieces with a holder that would screw together around the tube. .

    At first glance I'd say the back of the battery, but there is magnetic pull between the battery in the rf-v16 and the TB47s. .that's why I believe it would be best to mount it on the arm near the cockpit. .
    My idea is to make a mount that you can secure the tracker to and connect it to the arm..two halfs with a pouch that can be bolted or snapped together with a tight fit..I think we will see other accessories mounted this way..
