    When I landed it slipped of my shoebox and the prop kicked up a little dirt around the motor. Should I disassemble and clean or just hit with compressed air.

    Blow it off if you want. Or just turn it upside down and shake it at bit. Mainly, unless something is binding and keeping the props from spinning as freely as normal, don't worry about it. These things are not as fragile as some seem to think. Fly it!

    Thanks! It's very minor, just wanted a second opinion.

    Hand catch - much safer!
