karma propellers

I flew my drone nicely the other day. It got great video btw. I changed out batteries and then went to fly it again. I made the dumb mistake of taking off nearby my car and i let it hover for a bit... It ran into my car.. I broke 3 propellers I've gotten one off but two are stuck... I used the keys I got to try to take them off buts it is quite difficult. Has anyone gotten through with this before?

Re: karma propellers

Hi @megariver86567,

 

Sorry to hear about the Karma Crash, and getting those propellers off. lt can be a little tricky to get those off. Follow these steps to safely remove the damaged propeller:

 

  1. Fit the propeller replacement tool underneath the propeller and inside the motor's open spaces. 

User-added image

  1. Leverage the motor using the other propeller replacement tool and spin the propeller head in the opposite direction to loosen it. 

User-added image

  1. Once the propeller is free, spin it off the motor and replace it with your new propeller.

Hope that helps!

 

Best,

Ryan

Re: karma propellers

Dude. It worked! Awesome. Just finished a round of flying and I was successful. I would recommend trying to loosen the blade, not trying to get it off... Just let the propeller unscrew itself. Thanks Ryan!
