    I was watching a video on taking your quad apart to get ready to paint it. The video started out with the guy taking two wrenches to take his prop nuts off. Boy, am I happy DJI came up with the spin on props for my P2V because I am sure at some time I would have gone out for a fly and taken everything with me and forgot my nuts. ;)

    Is there a special spanner to hold the motor while you get the nuts off ?

    I have the Phantom 1, all motors with the same direction nuts and getting them tight enough with T Props is a big problem, also
    getting the bloody T Props off again is a nightmare !!!!!

    You have a good point. That would be as bad as a day past that when I was at the beach and decided not to fly because of the wind that came up. Got home and unpacked and discovered: No battery!
    That is when I made up my check list.

    That's what I need to do, I don't know how many times I've gone out for a flight and forgot my sd card or battery, most of the time it's my sd card, but now I keep a spare one in my phone at all times just in case.

    Kitari,
    The list helps for sure. As soon as I copy the video/pictures from my SD card and clear it, I always take the SD card and put it back in quad. Easy to miss.
