Whenever i ask B&H they tell me they haven't heard anything about free quick release props. Anyone else having this problem with them? Will they come to me directly from DJI?

I would talk to DJI.  But seeing how their customer service is rated unsatisfactory, I would keep bugging BH Photo. Ask Tahoe Ed or Blade on the RC forums.

I talked to the B&H rep last week, he put me on hold and talked with their DJI rep. He then told me anytime in the next few weeks they are expecting the new props/locks for customers to come in and automatically get shipped for free.

I got mine from DJI directly last week as well.  But I already had a demo set from Dr. Turbo and purchased an additional set from Multirotor Warehouse when they got some in.  If you have them, make the switch, you will not regret it.  The only issue is identifying the CW and CCW lettering on the locks.  It is small.

The free ones I received yesterday had white dots painted on the locks and the props. I bought some several weeks ago and there was only white dots on the locks and nothing on the props.

If the dealer we purchased the quad from doesn't know or believe we are eligible for free replacement props, how do we go about informing them... Is there a document we can download or direct the dealer to?

I really like the new props, except for the sharp edges when the blades are not installed. If i ever break a set of props. Or they could make and sell a set.  I'll make a set of covers from the centers. Is there a best practice for figuring out which prop goes where. I did not see any dots.

I just got mine as well, it makes setting up so much faster!!!! And it sounds like they are little quieter than the older props too!

One and three are CCW and 2 and 4 are CW.  I have been playing with the DJI quads for so long it is like second nature to me.  You will get used to it.

What do you mean sharp edges?  How are you handling the props?

The edges I am referencing are on the new locking mechanism attached to the motor. Over time, they will probably start cutting the foam on the case lid.

Tammie's Hobbies in Beaverton Oregon....

Just want to give credit where credit is due.... I went in again today and they had a basket full of the replacement props and locks....
They apologised it took so long, and gave me the parts.... They also referenced this forum to confirm that 3 sets of props and 2 packs of the motor locks were the correct number to give out.

They had several sets for sale as well.... I bought 4 sets of the yellow tipped


I am a very pleased customer.....  Thanks Tammies Hobby.

you don't order them.  They're supposed to just automatically send them to you.  Black tip only.

Thanks for the black tip only bro.

I ordered my bird from coptershop and they email guys a $50 dollar code to use as they wish with a link to the props for 32 clams, (wanting you to put the additional $18 towards new lipo pack or other accessory)

I absolute hate these stock props that came with the A model, they scare me they are so shitty and weak.
I could easily picture a June Bug shattering these cheap pieces of shit. I hope the replacement blades are better.

quick question, any know of some high quality props, carbon fiber perhaps, or any other high quality materials?  
(what's more important than your lipo pack and your props?)

Boston, you live close, June Bugs will emerge in only 2-3 weeks, what are you gonna do?

These are the same material as the original props, so breaking/failure potential is about the same if it were to hit an object at high speeds.  WRT june bugs, I don't think they are big enough to affect the props.  What we should be afraid of are the birds trying to eat the june bugs.  

Went flying a couple places this past week.  Here are some of my shots:

I'm worried about the hard junebugs "shattering" the brittle plastic, (if it were an apc prop I would have no worries).

Nice job filming bro, looks great.
I am doing the golf courses out here.
Filmed the clubhouses earlier in the week, waiting for the leaves and flowers to do the course, (maybe next week).

I'm loving this bird, I want some carbon props though, anyone have an idea?

Be careful with these guys! I have heard of the new mounting plates cracking!!! I wont be using them. A few extra minutes to install the old props and locks is worth it to me!!! The risk with these new quick release props is to high right now and if one cracks in flight you will lose your 3k Inspire!!! NOPE!!!
