    Hi. Are the blades supposed to be changed after some time, or they last a while if not crashed or abused?
    Thanks.

    Best thing to do is to visually inspect them frequently..make sure no cracks or nicks in them, as it can impede lift and stability. I bought about $60 worth of spares..have only had to replace one.

    You wouldn't believe the difference it makes when one is damaged.

    I broke one the other week, snapped about an inch off the end of one and trying to fly it was an absolute nightmare!

    Lol! Yeah don't do that!! The slightest dent/scratch and for me it's a new one one. Not worth it for our $1K plus investment to have lesser video quality.

    Don't forget to balance your props!
