    DJI does not sell these. PM me your mailing address and I'll send you one of mine.

    Actually that tool is not supposed to be used for installation - hand tight only as using that you may strip the plastic/nylon threads.

    That tool should only be used for removal of any prop that is too tight to remove by hand. I know, I know, many use it to tighten - but not necessary and likely does more harm that good for installation of props.

    Very nice gesture there msinger! Talk about "Phantom Help"!

    I bought me a very small strap wrench for removing the props.
    Most of the time I can just do it by hand.
    But eaglegoaltender is right, you should only hand tighten the props when putting them on.
    MSinger is the best.
    Make sure that if you want to purchase something for your Drone, you go through PhantomHelp top get it.

    Do you need one? Or, are you just wondering for the future? If you need one, I have one more. PM me your address.
