    Hi Guys

    After a few months of flying, I appear to have collected more than my fair share of broken props (mainly trees that unexpectedly jump out of the earth :eek: , or the ground suddenly appearing a meter too early :oops: ); does anyone have any good ideas on how to re-purpose/recycle these broken props?

    I'm off to practice landing and to formulate a tree avoidance/evasion policy. :cool:

    Many Thanks

    Seriously ? Get some prop guards for now.
    You can't recycle broken props ! And learn to fly slowly first.

    Broken props make good spatulas for use on other models.

    Having had to do some major change-outs I've cut down a set to about 2 inches for bench testing. It helps make sure everything is working as it should without enough lift to fly around.

    How about some fishing line and make a mobile out of them!

    I need a set of 4. If I pay shipping will you send them? 8 if you got 'em. 10 bucks should cover it?

    Cut 4 of them down and use them as thread protectors when it's in the case.
