0 3DR Prop Fasteners Unavailable? Posted by John on June 29, 2014 at 5:41pm Found these in a year old discussion but on the 3DR site they are listed but no status. Does anyone know if these will be available again at some point?https://store.3drobotics.com/products/propeller-fastener-and-shaft-kit-for-blue-moto-1 You need to be a member of diydrones to add comments!

I was thinking about trying the DJI 1045 props with the self tightening nut that is molded into the prop. No more little nuts or washers to lose.
I am thinking about the silver ones but the reviews are mixed so I was hoping to get the 3D Robotics product.
Go to your local Fastenal store and take one of the original prop nuts with you. Tell them you want the same size in "Kepnuts". The star washer is built right into the nut so you don't have to keep track of the small washers. I can't remember the size but that's what I did and have been using them for awhile now. They work great and they are cheap.
Cool, thanks for sharing!!
So with these blue ones, you bolt the bottom onto the motor (remove existing hub) and then you can easily spin on the tops and tighten them by putting the rod through that hole and tightening?
For the black ones, I don't really see how they help??
Can someone shed more light on both these kits and my speculations of?
Yes, just use an appropriately sized metal rod, could be a nail, Allen wrench, whatever to tighten it down.
I usually end up holding the prop to get enough leverage when tightening the prop nut and I'm afraid that I'll hurt the prop one day. The prop shaft is too short for me also.
Here's where I found this link.
would this work?
