Hello all
I recently received a Holy Stone 400 as a gift. Alas, on a flight the drone hit the side of the house, and broke off one of the screws holding the propellers. The head of the screw broke off, leaving the base of the screw imbedded into the motor shaft. I cannot seem to get the screw base to come out, it seems to be lodged quite firmly in the housing. Any suggestions, short of ordering a new motor and arm?
Thanks for any suggestions

Problem solved. The screw did not break, but came detached from a plastic sleeve that grips it on one end, and grips the motor shaft on the other. Once I figured that out, I was able to reattach the screw and propellers, and it seems to fly fine.
