If you leave your props on between flights please check their tightness before the next flight. It's possible the active braking feature could have a tendency to loosen them a bit if they are not super snug to begin with.

Could this be the reason for the few crashes we've seen???

Highly doubt it.

the newer motors have a lot more power and it makes sense that sudden stop or braking action may torque them loose a little bit a t times.

on DJI forum a guy(yorlik) has demonstrated that this is certainly possible under high load conditions.

sorry that is on p2 v3

Well, I noticed one of mine was fairly loose today and it's only been in the air a few times.

You should hand tighten them before every flight.
