Can i keep them on somehow or is there an inexpesive 50 pk :O available?
Remove the props and bind the X4. Turn the X4 upside down and run the motors a bit using a emery board to rough up the shafts a little so they're not so slick where the prop mounts. Put very small drop of white glue or wood glue on tip of the shaft and replace the props (insuring A & B props go to the right place). Let cure upside-down overnight. Props won't come off unless you use the pry tool. Note, I've used a tiny bit of CA too but white/wood glue is safer. CA on the tiny ProtoX props bonded so tightly that when I tried to remove a prop I pulled the motor shaft out. Probably wouldn't happen on the larger X4 motors but still, white glue is best.

I have a small piece of dust in my videos (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...5/staub01.jpeg). I cleaned the lens over and over again, but the dirt seems to be under the lens. Is it possible to open the camera module?
