My mavics propellers got broken yesterday when mavic starts to behaving kinda irrational. According to sales rep, new propellers can be shipping in 8-12 weeks.

How I can repair broken propellers?

Do you think its appropriate to fly a $1000 machine with repaired propellers knowing that just one failing could result in injury?

Bent blades can prolong the longevity of the motors.  Eye them up best as possible to make sure their as true as possible

DONT do that, they spin with thousands of RPM and are under very high stress.

Just dont, i beg you...

How do bent blades prolong longevity of the motors? Don't you mean the opposite?

NO!

Propellers are weighted and balanced.  A damaged prop at high rpm at minimum could damage motors, let alone depart the aircraft becoming a high velocity projectile.

Do yourself a favor and order a handful of props and discard any with damage.

Maybe you'd have gotten the props if you'd ordered them separately from the battery.

looks like that could be the issue,   it sure would be nice if they would just ship what they have, and back order what ever is still in production,

Newbie question so the replacement props all show 2 props both with white stripes.  The manual says to attach white ringed propellers to the mounting base with white marks.  So what about replacement props for the mounting base without white marks?
Ah ha upon closer inspection I see one has a white ring in the middle and one doesn't.  So for the $9 pair you get 1 front and 1 back replacement?
As a side note how did your Mavic crash Andy?  I saw you're YouTube videos and they looked great.

I need to throw in a plug for these guys.  

Less than 30 minutes after placing the order they called to verify my address and said my Mavic props were shipping today and provided a tracking number.

I guess they offered pair , one with white mark and one without mark. I crashed Mavic when tried to fly in ATTI mode ~ 40 inches.  It does not hoover in place , but immediately moved and crashed into wall.

So advexure and multicopter both have them in stock, I wonder which is better to buy from being in NC, shipping cost, time, and repeating purchases.

I have seen that they are also available on Amazon, and with Amazon Prime, so for those Prime subscribers, you will save more with the free shipping. Someone here posted that they arrived in just 2 days.

Careful that the ones sold on Amazon are genuine.   At least for the Phantom, most of the ones I saw on Amazon had poor ratings.

They spin with about 500 - 600 rpms .............. Just take a look on the RC next time You fly ..............
