Default cracked a prop &

SINCE I didn't have any spare props laying around & having a broken prop close to the edge ,I trimmed all 4 to match ,re -balanced and Im back in action. I snipped off around a inch off my DJI 10" plastic props . Amazing enough it fly's pretty good. Not much pop at all but its keeping me in the air till I get my Disco all trick out next week if shipping goes well. In calm weather While flying right before dark this F450 is still doing a great job. My HF Doner F450 is Truly a Frankenstein Quad but its even smoother than before now, I made some custom shims so I could mount my DJI props on my 2 good TBS 900kv motors and hooked up my 2 best DJI red 920KVs up front, the TBS motors in the rear & I'm running 2 different 30 Amp ESC s too. Having so much fun with it I think I'll have to buy a second X8R receiver ,another Sony mini 600TVL camera and I'll put a 500 or 600 mw 32 ch VTX. So glad you guys kept me going after my Fly away.

I've done that with props too... you lose a bit of thrust but hey you're flying.

Looks like your multirotor skillz are coming along nicely :-)

Default having a blast

I even kept trying different 5.8 antenna combos on my Black pearl monitor with different VTX Antennas and Wow I now have a real nice clean sharp FPV that even let's me go even further With out getting fuzz like I did when I started out. Learning little tricks as I go. Tinkering pays off. Even location of antennas makes a big difference. I can't wait till I get my Disco back in the air all tricked out and looking pretty.
