    hi guys.
    today i had my first hard landing (landed in a neiborgh's house, about 500mt away home) and luckily for me i only broke a prop. so my question is:

    when replacing props do you replace all of them or just the damaged one?

    thanks and happy flying :)

    If the others are in good condition then just replace one. Then if it doesn't fly quite like it used to or the video has jello... replace all of them. ;)

    I had a slight crash on my maiden. One prop hit the case and broke. The other went into the grass. I inspected them and only replaced the broken prop. 19 flight later they still look and fly great.

    Not a bad thing to have spare props. I ordered two more sets and haven't crashed since. Knock on wood.
