While waiting on DJI to fix the CPU bug, sorry I forgot, they call it a feature, I decided to play with the wobbling props.  You know, the other issue they say is normal. I decovered that if I put a sliver of paper in the small channel of the prop mounts where the screws are, I could remove all wobble. Looking for something that would last a little longer, I found that if I put a thin strip of electrical tape in the same location but on the underside of the prop, I'd get the same results without resorting to permenently altering the props with something like superglue. I'm sure the tape will eventually fall off or wear out, but it's super easy to replace and now my props are solid.

That is a very neat solution! Are you selling those?

No I dont sell them JBInspire. I would feel guilty making a profit on it.
Are you UK based ? I could send you some for free if you pay for the shipping.

I need to say that this is ( I hope ) a temporary solution.

I'd be happy to put a couple of quid into your bank account for the shims. Do you cut them out too? I'm UK.

They are already cut shapes as vinyl stickers done by industry cutter. You just have to peel them off and stick to the mount... job done.
