I contacted parrot Tech - support U.K. To Ask about screw prop replacement spares, could I get some from them , or what spec the screws are..
The reply I recieved was -

The only spares available , are batteries . And props .

Not screws.. I don’t think I’m the only one to have dropped a small screw before..


Not a major item to parrot try securely attaching a new or old prop without the correct screw.

Which is possibly why other manufactures supply spare screws.. But not parrot..
Please be careful - Make sure you never get a screw loose ..
If you do change your Props make sure it’s in a secure well lit - work area , with a magnetic mat.. ‘
cos if you lose just - 1 screw that’s your flying over .. For the sake of pennies..
forget how long the battery lasts , which angle your camera reaches- How easy and compact it folds .. Drop one screw , or 1 works lose -
Game over .. Until you find a compatible screws..

But always remember - Always use - Parrot spares as it will void your warranted..

Your message is so right on. There must be a way to get new screws other than ordering another new bird, then taking the screws you need before returning it as defective for money back? Come on Parrot. Send us some screws rather than screwing us!

I agree and think it's pretty lame that parrot does not include spare screws with the set of props that come when you originally purchase the Anafi
However that being said, screws are included when you purchase a set of parrot OEM replacement props - Best buy, Amazon, etc, reasonably priced at $20 in US

I just swapped all props yesterday and could not find any screws in the box. I had two sets from Parrot one was un opened.
This is a major problem since the screws are not easily sourced. They are whats called a "Shoulder screw."

Hey,

Same problem, are you saying one or some of these links work for the Anafi, the Traxxas look the most similar
