Hey guys, im new to my DJI Spark and when i tried flyong earlier, one of my propellers clipped an object upon landing and broke the clips that hold it on the motor. I removed all the pieces i could see from the attachment point and attempted to install a new propellor, only to find out i hadn't  paid attention in my frustration, and installed a prop without the circle on the incorrect motor. So now i have tried to remove it to replace it with the proper one, but unfortunately, it is stuck in place and wont turn far enough to release the clips. Im very scared im gping to break it trying to get it to come off. Please help!!

Unfortunately, you will not have a choice on this. You would need to have a technician look at your aircraft. You can begin the process here: https://www.dji.com/service/repair?site=brandsite&from=nav

I really want to try this so that I can see what's so hard about it!

I've replaced props and you can FEEL that the props don't want to go on in the wrong locations.  I'm not sure how so many people keep doing this and I'm really not sure why you can't get them back off, but I AM very curious!

I was able to remove the prop and replace it with the correct one. I have not tested it yet due to bad weather, but will update.

This just happened to me and I actually managed to get it of. Took me about 5 minutes of tweaking. I didn't have to apply  a lot of force I think I just had to push it down far enough for it to get unstuck. So it's possible to get it off with some patient!
