SURE,,, but why would you want to risk more damage, when you know its a issue,    its kind of like driving a care with a flat tire,,,    unsafe,,

You could  but your prop can break in piece in mid air.  I know, it sad but it better to spend 15 bucks than seeing your drone hitting the ground for a broken prop.

All depends on how bad the nick is. Some people are pickier about damage than others. People have all kinds of different ideas on what you classify as "small". If your idea of a small nick is the same as mine, I'd say to go head and fly. Keep an eye on it - Inspect it every time you land and before you take off to make sure its not getting worse or cracking. I've watched youtube videos where people have intentionally snipped half a prop off for experimentation and it still flies fine. The biggest concern is the unbalance issue. If you love your Mavic, know you could be adding stress to your machine with an out of balance prop.

Props are the most critical component of a drone, and to fly without perfect props is to risk the entire investment and constitutes a safety hazard.

Didn't your Mavic come with a couple of spares? Or have you already gone through them? :-) hehe

if you have any vendors around you,  like  Apple store,  or  maybe  Best buy,  some of them have props in stock,  they are also on amazon, with shipping today,,,    hope you get back in the air soon,   Did not mean to sound like a jerk,  but  hate to see someone risk 1000.00 item for a 10 dollar part,     but there was a video where a guy put this gem thru a series of destruction  and it survived,  he cut off a prop,  4 or 5 times and it still flew,  not sure what kind of damage that would do to a motor, with unbalance, but  was impressive,,,  anyway,,  hope the best, getting back in the sky


you can also get props from this place on ebay with free shipping,  and they have battries at 89.00 with free shipping,

Agree with HWKID.  Props are "cheep" compared to the $1k investment that it supports.

I am glad you decided to wait.  

Always think of your drone as an airplane and you are the pilot. Would fly your plane with any damages to the wings???
