    Hey Gang,

    Anybody know which size allen / hex key I'll need in order to replace a broken propeller mount? I've added a couple of these parts to my flight case since they cost peanuts and can make the difference between a successful outing and a wasted trip, but I can't figure out what size allen key I need. Being an engineer I've tried all the metric and imperial hex keys in my arsenal, but DJI seem to have used a weird size.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mark.

    Thanks. I already have a 1.5mm hex and it's a poor fit, just won't go right in. Could be a duff tool though, it's not like I have a lot of 1.5 mil screws on stuff.

    Yep 1.5mm and the torque is very little, I do not remember the value but do not over torque!
