most drones have fixed blades , the Spark and some others have floding blades . what i do is check the blades for cracks and extend the Spark folding blades so that they ars stright on tak off and there is no stress on the motors when spinging up . my question is when shood blades be changed and if one half of a blade breaks off will the Spark still fly and how well will it fly .thank you

" if one half of a blade breaks"- One half of a half?

Actually, if that is a result of a crack before: changed to late
If it is from a hit: Motors turn off anyway

I think I have seen a report/test video, where someone cutted parts of one half blade, from the top down, to test how much of it is needed.
Not sure, doh, but I think it was ~20 % of the one tip of one propeller can be MIA and still flying

Check for signs of cracks etc on the blades and replace if any damage is visible. DJI also advise to change props every 200 flights irrespective of the condition. If a quad copter is down to three blades it will crash. As for 3.5 blades - no idea - not something I'd want to test either.

Those are the most famous spark durability test's where they tested cutting props and missing props .

Wow! Never seen those videos before. That’s insane! Mine fell over 100 feet one time (don’t ask) and it still works fine. Not a propeller cracked.
