    Hi,

    My Inspire's quick release props doesn't really go "click" when I attach them. Is this how they are or have I got something to worry about? Brand new out of the box props and platform.

    The user manual states it should click into place. I have not felt or heard any clicks, but they did feel secure and the arrows were all lined up in the locked position.

    They're not supposed to click , to check for proper installation lightly grab the motor with one hand and the prop with the other then move the prop back and forth the motor should move with the prop as one . I do this with each prop once installed . Which version do you have ?

    Yes, push and twist. Lining up the little markers.

    My advice I change the locking plastic piece on the motor even my old props tighten up. If I put them on an hold the motor and try an spin it there tight they don't fly off . Part # 53 there cheap an well worth it

    You can get those in aluminum also a lot of people use them and say they're much better than the plastic ones...

    I saw them on eBay they were around 50 I think. I can't find the post now. I can see people over tightening the Allen screws and cracking the plastic ones

    Dronesvision has the metal ones as well. Read some reviews about metal on plastic which could destroy the blade .

    Ain't it already metal on plastic on plastic. Metal on metal on plastic sounds ok to me. The blades tell me when it's time to toss (not very often at all) usually one or two just don't require the same force as they used too. That said, 1345Ts all stock work fine for me. Damn this thread, time to swap for new hubs and blades, 100ish flights on them. Zero issues flying stock blades starting with threaded with no prop locks. Inspect inspect inspect.

    The review was the metal hub vers the plastic one wearing on the plastic prop . I have the quick release but personally you can't go wrong with the thread on ones . I completely agree inspect everything
