    Hi

    I have searched but can't find the answer to my question.

    I used the wrong color propeller for one of the arms of my phantom 3 standard and struggling to remove it. Does anyone know any easy way to remove it?[​IMG]

    Are you sure you're turning the prop in the correct direction? If not, you'll just be making it even tighter.

    The props should be easy to remove if you hold the motor with one hand and turn the prop with the other hand. If it's very hard to unwind, then you are most likely turning it in the wrong direction.

    I have tried with no luck, I think I tightened it in the wrong direction too hard.

    The threads are only plastic, so it should unwind if you're turning it in the correct direction. Other than attempting to somehow cut it off, I'm all out of ideas.

    Thanks! I managed to remove it with a wrench! I think because I screwed innit tightly in the wrong direction I had to unwind in the wrong direction to get it off if that makes any sense. Thanks for your help.[​IMG]

    Yes, that does make sense. That's why I was asking if you were turning it in the correct direction (which would have been opposite from the arrows on the arm) ;)
