Does anyone else have this issue?  Two of my LED covers are loose and rattle around.  They appear to still be locked in well enough to not fall off but it's annoying to have pieces starting to get loose already.  I have not crashed, had any hard landings, or flown aggressively.

The vibration of the props causes this sometimes...on my Blade 350QX3, the motor mounting screws used to slowly get loose just from vibration, and the shell screws too

When you find a prop out of balance what is done to balance it? Weights? or..?

Any ideas on where to purchase replacements?

I have a 'friend' that may or may not have backed into a tree when flying in follow-me during beta.  The quad is hypothetically fine, however if a cover came off he would need a new one.
