    I bought a Phantom at Precision Camera in Austin. I immediately lost a prop nut (black cc). I went back to precision but they had none. The next day I went to the DJI office on Anderson to beg for one. They had none. The very nice guys there suggested I try Empire Hobby. They had none. The only place I could find on the web that did have them that wasn't in China was B&H Photo. I overnighted a complete set. They sent me ten clockwise threaded nuts and no counterclockwise. They have since marked the listing out of stock.

    I have ordered some plastic ones from China but they are six weeks out.

    I'd gladly pay someone $40 to overnight me one if they have a spare.

    This is proving to be a time and money consuming hobby. So far it's about $500/ minute :)

    Any suggestions?

    Come to expect DJI to fail to supply dealers with adequate replacement parts on new products. :evil:
