If anyone has a broken Skydio 2 that they have replaced I'm looking for the hook plate or prop plate off of one of the blue motors. It's the little plate held on with two torx screws.
My Skydio decided it wanted to fly into a tree while following my vehicle off-road which broke one of the nubs on the hook plate, the drone still flies fine but I'd like to replace the part so I know the propeller won't come off in flight.
I have tried reaching out to Skydio but they don't answer their phones and have so far not gotten back to me, the one person I have found that had this piece broke had to send the drone into Skydio as they would not sell the part separately.
If anyone would be willing to sell me the part so I can get the drone going again it would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: I also had posted this on reddit and /U/thebirdsrchasingme came through:
Sorry for coming late to the party but I stumbled across this conversation after I crashed my S2 on my very first flight--got it 2 days ago and killed it yesterday. Like others, it snagged on a tree brach and exploded 2 props plus the RL hanger.
I initially uploaded the flight log and reached out to Skydio for help but got impatient and tried to look for replacement parts on the internet and found nothing. I've been flying DJI drones since the Phantom 3 and you can find just about any part for dirt cheap so I'm really not used to this.
So I decided if I can't buy it, I may as well make it myself. After spending a few hours while enjoying a couple of beers, I came up with the design below. Printed it in PETG and viola! I can now make as many of these as I want to. I'm making my design free for the community to download and use. So feel free to hop on over to thingiverse and grab the STL. If you don't already own a 3D Printer, you really should!
Skydio 2 Rear Left Prop Hanger/Hook Plate by kinryanchan
I have flight tested one battery so far at 14 degrees F. Everything seems good so far but please try this at your own risk. I would strongly recommend printing more than one part so you can stress test and see if it holds up to a reasonable amount of force. Also, as you may have noticed every prop hanger is different on this thing. If this is not the one you need, let me know and I will make them as needed.
As a side note, I completely agree with everyone here that Skydio shouldn't treat us like a bunch of 3 year olds. We're all adults that can take responsibility for our own (stupid) actions.
Happy flying everyone!"
All thanks go to him, if someone needs another of the hook plates besides this one, let me know and I'll reach out to him.
