    I was wondering does anyone know what size and type screw is used for the prop guards ?
    Is it a shoulder screw ?
    Reason I'm asking , I'm thinking of getting that size screw , in a thumb screw. In case I fly around anyone I can quick change them out.

    I would just buy actual DJI locking nuts, or just re-buy the prop-guards - they're not that expensive.

    Locking nuts for a screw ? I'm not buying new prop guards for the dcrews. I just wanted to quick change them with thumb screws.

    You would need thumb screws for the prop guard screws as well as the stock screws in those holes, popping the longer ones back in after removing the prop guards will damage the motors.

    The stock screws are M3.0x8
    The prop guard screws are M3.0x12
