Easy way to install/remove HQ Props

First of all, we'd like to thank everyone that has supported us by visiting our site. It's been a real honor and pleasure to contribute to the FPV community. We hope to keep improving to provide better products and services.

We've heard some discussion about the difficulty in installing/removing HQ Props. HQ props are designed with a very "snug" fit to make sure there are no unnecessary rotations from coming from lose prop nuts. The last thing we want is to drop out of the sky, while our props fly away without us.

We've come up with a simple and easy solution to aid in the installation/removal process. All you need are your wire cutters or needle nose pliers. 

Quad Blade from HQ Prop at and wire cutters

Hollow out the middle of the prop a bit using the wire cutter. Make 2-3 rotations to remove some of the plastic on the inner portion. Go slow, it's okay to not remove enough in the beginning, just repeat the step until the fit feels right. 

2-3 rotations to remove some plastic.

What you'll have left is a larger opening that will help with installation and removal of the prop. All this of course is optional. In the image below, the prop on the left has been hollowed out. The prop on the right is in it's original condition. 

Comparison of openings.

We hope this helps! Please leave a comment below, letting us know how helpful this was. Also, if you have any topics in mind that you'd like us to cover, please leave that in the comment as well!

walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, 
for there you have been and there you will
always long to return"
