    Hmm... the threaded shafts of the motors cannot generate enough lift?

    What indication do you have from the LED? Blinking yellow/red?Or fast blinking yellow? In this case the propellers have nothing to do with your problem.Maybe in your house there are some interferences from installed wifi.
