I don't use Graupner$.
I actually prefer APCs on my F450 and F550.
I use the stock Phantom props.
So, the stock DJI nuts are fine for me.
The F550 has SunnySky motors on it, so the prop nut's completely different.
MC uses the nyloc nuts because of his famous F550 prop/motor out video.
I think he regularly changes his at the third or fifth on/off cycle.

When you get accustomed to flying quads, you don't pull props off very often.
You guys will get to where you don't crash and skin props so much.
My F450 props have not had to be removed since last July...
