Whoops!
A few seconds in the air, need good props.

Normally we can keep it up in the air for quite some time, but once in a while there are issues from the crappy GWS clone props which fall off the prop saver.

Where can I get good 7" props and prop adapters?

Are really the props and the adapters cheap or you dont have any threadlock in them?

We're not using adapters, using propsavers which don't always hold down the propeller properly.

The props are cheap, they're the 'gws style' propellers from hobbyking. The quality is craaaaap, I can probably make better propellers by hand from wood. We got these because they were the only 7" props we could find from a legitimate looking site.

A lot of people comment on that, but the cage weighs something like 70 grams in total with all the plastic pieces. Most of that is below the propellers, the stuff above barely compares considering that the entire quad weighs something like 650grams.
