Syma X5C prop play.

    I've noticed a little vertical play in the props on my X5C, about 1mm or so.
    Would there be any advantage in taking up the slack by removing the props and fitting tiny washers? I'd obviously leave a hairs width of play so they were still able to rotate.
    Would it make things smoother/less noisy?

    These are toys, you can expect a little slop. I wouldn't mess with it

    No added benefit, the weight would be the only affect. The play is removed when it lifts the weight of the quad. Even brushless hobby grade have vertical slack hahaha
