Are your prop edges really clean and sharp? That's where the rubber meets the road and bad tires lose traction. Props take the first hit with any impact. Especially the leading edge which is most important as far as airflow over the prop goes. Little nicks and dents majorly hurt thrust.

Also any impacts that caused bends that are easy bent back hurt thrust. When you hold the quad level at eye height and run the throttle up a little all the props should appear to be in a single flat plane.

So most of my props are getting beat up except for the one I replaced. I'll place an order for some more props on HK. It seems from reading the comments that hopping up the motors have more variables than I thought. After replacing one of the booms and a prop my mQx just won't lift off but rotate off an anchor point like one of the props. That's why I thought of replacing the motors with one with more thrust. Now it appears I'll have to trouble shoot the weak motor(s). I don't want to sacrifice forward speed for more lift.
