    I got a new P3A and need to switch the prop guards. As you know the guards come with screws with the blue lock title coating? Is it safe to reuse these screws or should I try to get new ones or is there a kind of lock title I can apply on the old screws? Your input is appreciated.

    You can reuse the screws. Just need to reapply some loctite.

    Just make sure you will ask Loctite for plastic. The normal Loctite is aggressive to the plastic. Alternatively you can just put a drop of Super Glue.

    I thought there was a lock title for plastic, no super glue for me. Thanks.
