It would be best to receive replacement propellers. You may want to look into replacing the propeller locks as well for good measure.

The propeller mounting brackets, that would have been the better term.

I say this with all due respect to you, as I don't know you personally.
I don't have anything good to say about the video. Or your decision to fly it, with a damaged rotor blade.  Particularly while quite obviously, well too impaired to drive a motor vehicle. How the Hell do you think it's any different to take a medium sized, hobby class drone with its own impairment and fly it in a residential neighbourhood.  Then post your bravado on YouTube... Haha

Momma always used to say "if you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything". For the "good of the hobby" implies a lot. A hobby which was once the private bastion of RC men of reason has been taken over by the superficially entertained and irresponsible masses with experimental tendencies and loose morals. It is a victim of its own success. It is now a recreational pastime for any yahoo who wants to try it. They don't even take time to learn the rules of the hobby, by Jimminy!   Sorry.  

Unfortunately, the government does not care about how responsible you are or are not. They care about politics, money and headlines. With all due respect you cannot stop or start regulation by telling people you think are stupid that they're stupid with all due respect. There will always be one or two that slip through despite your best efforts. If anyone really wants to prevent regulation, take all the time you save from no longer teaching others the ways of the hobby and use it to contact your elected representatives and make it clear to them that you want them to oppose drone regulation!  Tell DJI to spend some of the money we give them to lobby for us! That will actually work, even if it does not feel as good as telling the yahoos that they're yahoos.
