Blade Glimpse FPV Blades

    Hi there,

    I ordered replacement blades for my Blade Glimpse FPV and the aircraft won't fly. I strongly suspect they're made wrong.

    The motors spin fine, but 2 blades don't produce lift. (By placing my hand under the quad and feeling for airflow)

    - two green blades in the front (left front / right front) and two white blades in the rear (left rear / right rear)

    Questions:

    - I'm curious to know if anyone else has encountered a similar issue?
    - anyone have recommendations for alternative replacement blades?
    - anyone know the motor configuration ( which motors turn clockwise / counterclockwise)?

    It's a silly issue, but annoying so any help is appreciated!

    Cheers

    Hi mate most quads are front left CW front right CCW
    rear left CCW rear right CW
    Make sure the blades are on the right way round the high edge of the prop is the leading edge

    Thanks mate!

    That was exactly the issue. I was able to quickly align the leading edges with the direction of rotation and it works fine!

    I'll admit I'm embarrassed I didn't figure it out myself. :)

    Thanks again!
