For some reason the legs of my Inspire are causing the front left propeller to hit the side of the adaptor plate of the x5. Has anyone ever seen this??

That should not happen, my sense is the legs are at a diff angle. You could lose your aircraft if the propeller breaks. I'd call DJI

There's a few videos on YouTube, I don't have any links but it involves a little tiny screw that's under a warranty sticker. I wouldn't fly until it's sorted out because it's odd that it was fine and suddenly a prop is hitting? It might have to sent in for repair. For some reason I can't see any of the pictures you posted.

Its no big deal adjusting the angle of the legs... undo the screw that R&L Aerial mentioned. and slide of the clamp... adjust the angle of the legs to match the other side slide it back on and tighten screw... all done ...( the angle most likely changed as a result of a impact )...

Are you at liberty to reveal what happened to the model when you last used it, Frazer.
Did you have a hard landing, or may have somehow placed excessive weight down on one side of the model.  Are you saying it was perfectly fine the last time you had flown it, but somehow the model is no longer level and sets lower on one side that the other.
Is it possible the propeller is not seated firmly in place on the motor hub, Frazer.  Come on you can tell us, we won't tell DJI.   : )

Seriously, I'm sure this can happen, its just a bit uncommon is all, and maybe something you might rather not want to adjust yourself.
If it had experienced a hard landing or whatever, you may want to have the aircraft checked out completely before flying it again.
