Props are labeled "A" (anti-clockwise) and "C" (clockwise) on the underside. MUST be installed in correct position. I recommend doing one at a time. If looking down on the drone with the camera facing forward (and you behind the drone), the "A" props are at the front right and rear left positions, "C" props are located in the front left and rear right positions. ARDrone-Flyers dot com has a thread on correcting pitch, straightening, and balancing. You should perform in that order; pitch, straightening, balancing. Great site for drone info.
Besides correcting several issues (drops or loses altitude for no reason, flips without command, etc.) it will reduce or eliminate "jello" from your videos and increase your flying time. Surprisingly easy, doesn't require specialized tools, and relatively quick to complete.
I highly recommend replacing the stock brass bushings with sealed high-performance bearings. Again, inexpensive and easy to do, and will (supposedly) increase your motor life X 4.
I also recommend gear protectors for when you graduate to the outdoor hull. At a minimum you should consider the following spares:
Extra circlips (also know as eclips).
Extra propeller shafts
Extra propeller gears
Extra pinion gears
Gorilla Glue (for repairing the outdoor hull. The included acrylic tape works, but won't hold if you're flying in cold weather.) I've ordered some EVO Stick Serious Glue, but I can only find it in Great Britain and am waiting to receive it. About $16 US (which includes shipping) for a 33 gram bottle.
I also really like the MacGyver mod. Extends your range while retaining all the functionality you get with iOS and Android. You do lose Absolute Control however. Once you've been flying awhile the need for Absolute Control isn't necessary anyway.
BTW, the filing an sanded props are still in good enough shape to a 3.8 oz HD camera mounted on top of the AR Drone's indoor hull. Flying time is cut in half but it is an exercise in seeing if I can develop enough lift from less than perfect props.
If you look around on YouTube, you can find videos for ways to make sure that the props are EXACTLY the shape that they are supposed to be. I will be doing that to these props as soon as I end up actually needing to open the package. I also plan to do a really good job balancing them, so that the AR.DRone will run as smoothly as possible.
Overall, they were a good price for the peace of mind of having an extra set for if (when?) I need them.
