    While flying today had a prop warning come up. I forget now exactly what it said. But I'm guessing maybe a little bit of wear on the plastic fittings is causing a bit of vibration in the motors. Landed and changed battery and did not have the warning on 2nd flight. Has anyone had this yet and should I go ahead and change props now? Still on my original set after 2 months plus. Prob flown 120 flights maybe.

    Ok great Phantomix. Wasn't sure if it might be hard on motors if a prop was a tad sloppy in the fittings. They seem fine when I put them on still though.

    I would very carefully inspect the motors and propellers, to make sure that nothing is wrong. Better to find a crack before flight, than realizing it after it crashes.

    check and make sure the screws are tight at the engines and prop holders....

    No problems there. Theyre all snug. Inspected all props too. They look flawless inside hub and everywhere else. Might have just been a freaky glitch.
