    I'm really sad because my new phantom 2 crashed because one of the nut and carbon fiber props just came out while flying in mid-air. I was lucky enough there we some trees that cushioned the fall and my go pro, as well as most of the parts were in good condition.

    Before flight, i did the necessary checks and what not to make sure every thing was alright and clear to fly, but clearly I have missed on something when tightening the props. I really tightened the nuts up and make sure all four were tight but I was doing it with my hands. is there a specific way to tightened up props on T-Motors? Because i've seen some videos showing that even using the stock dji props form the T-motors, it has to be installed in a different way. is that true?

    I hope anyone can provide me with the specific information about this so this event can be avoided in the future. Thank you
