    Does anyone know the specs of the nuts that hold on the blades? I lost one.

    Update: it's 6mm

    Yes, I'm using these. Even though I only needed 2, I replaced all 4 to keep things in balance. They are a bit lighter I believe. You'll also need a 10mm wrench as the DJI blade wrench is too large.

    ah nice. I'm going to have to drop by Home Depot sometime.
    .. currently getting by using a standard M6 nut.

    is it really that critical to have all identical nuts for balance?

    I can't help but wonder if a smaller nut might contribute to structural weakness.. (whereas a wider nut would apply force more evenly)
    as i just put an extra prop on with a smaller nut,.. and the prop broke off in flight!.
