Hi all,  So the first day even before flying my P3S I installed prop guards(removable) I remember when removing the motor screws they were tight as hell.. (why so tight?) ...  Anyways, been flying with the mounts and i have around 70 flights.   Lately I have been reading bout cracks so I thought I would check mine.  Went to buy the T6 AND T8 SCREW DRIVERS and crossed my fingers..  I noticed no cracks what so ever.. not even in the holes where the screws go in the shell..    However, I noticed that when I tried to remove the two screws  that are behind the four motor screws.... they were very very tight...!   I was surpriced with that amount of force back at the factory it didnt strip the plastic.....     Is it necessary to tighten the screws so much????

Hello gerardorejeg, you don't need to worry about this too much. Normally it is not necessary to loosen the screws.

They were not over tightened, it's the Loctite that made them hard to remove.
