Thanks for digging that up.
I have seen that but understood these motors were like the newer ones.
The first place I inquired about the motors suggested the locking props.

I can see our 350 props have the proper leading edge towards rotation.

NO matter which way these screw on the closed lock emblem is towards the wrong edge of the prop. At least that is what it seems to me.


The only instructions show this Phantom and an arrow which I think is the battery compartment not the front. If it is the back the rotors spin the same?



Guess I will sleep on all this and go in Monday. I know the LHS put two on a Blade but probably used the nut caps which will have to be tight with the prop spinning opposite the tightening.

The "closed lock emblem" on your props is opposite the direction of prop rotation..they screw on opposite direction of rotation..so that when the motor rotates the force is in the tightening direction. Looks like the arrows on your props tell you which way to tighten the props ( opposite the direction of rotation for flight)
Try this to help wrap your head a round it..hold the prop and rotate the motor while screwing on the prop..the direction that you have to turn the motor..CW or CCW is the position the motor should be in.

I had it in my head that rotating towards the direction I tightened would be the case.

Never quite grasped the correlation between that the prop lock icon and the labeling of the motor direction.

Guess I'm loosing it.Not enough brain activity up till now. Upside down and bacards never bothered me before.

I took another approach and placed the motors in a position that when the motor was rotating the direction layed out in the 350 diagram, the proper leading edge for lift was going the right way. Then I swapped wires on the motors so they would rotate the proper direction.
Done deal.
To heck with the label on the motor.

Went out of course to try it and it got a lock and then lost GPS.( I'm still in flight training.)
Checked with my handheld GPS and only get 4 sats at less than half signal.

Lots of icy stuff in the atmosphere I guess because of course then it started freezing rain.
Ok one short flight in stability mode. It took off like a rocket whoa had to come back down and gain my senses.
I have a very limited area to test here at the house.

After all that work I think I will quit while I am ahead.
Live to crash another day.

Thanks for your input Highoctane 22.

Got a flight out at 24F degree's, and it was not fun. like a Sci-Fi show. Day after Tomorrow, where that Air freezes everything. That was what happened to my Blade it hit this wall of cold air. and Dropped.



That soft stuff is frozen stuff, all is fine, paced it in thawed off and Fish will fly another day. Back to the FFM350 Qx body project

I flew for 30 seconds. I put together the FFM350 frame ,and will tear apart another time for some corrections. I with the help of tt408, got the quad (original ) to work, looking for GPS. when the new and improved is in. I shall know for sure. of failed parts. Once All is up & running , I'll do an overhaul on her.

If you are good with grafting severed body parts and it's holding up for you, would you be interested in some more cadavers.
They all fit in a USPS medium flat rate box. $12.35
Well one did not fit, so I trimmed it a bit.
The bodies are in varying condition but not too great.

With all of the horror I have heard about the props, I decided to inspect mine today. Sure enough, every one of them has stress cracks in them. And yes, they are all "B" props with only about 6-8 flights on them, WTF? They gave me a full set of spares in the box, but I will be calling Horizon tomorrow. This isn't cool. The plastic seems VERY brittle!

Right where the blade meets the hub, near and around the hub screw locations.

I wish they made a better prop that fit the stock motors with the same pitch.
