Hi
I did try that but the rubber band is to big to fit in the hole because it is such a small screw, and the screw driver puts holes in the rubber band cause it is so sharp



Would putting gorilla glue on the screw and inserting the screw driver and waiting for it to dry  work?

Yes, you can drop a drop of quick glue and immediately glue the screwdriver, But it's dangerous, you can't glue the propeller to the propeller

Have you rounded out the cross slot?
If so and all else fails, tape over ALL the openings into the motor, to keep bits out of the motor, and file or cut away the top of the propellers hub to expose the head of the screw then grip the head of the screw with pliers and undo it.

Guys
I talked to someone from the Dji store they said I should send the drone to them and I am worried that will take a long time because I live so fare away

Should I just remove the screw myself?
