After a minor crash, the props are on tight and won't unscrew by hand (I haven't tried to force too much cuz I usually leave them on anyhow) , but can this cause any issues?? one prop is scruffed up on tips, should I file it smooth?, get it balanced?, or replace it?
When you say 'scruffed up', that sounds like some kind of abrasion... at minimum, you may want to balance that prop before you use it again; if it's unbalanced, after a few thousand rpm's, who can say what the result could be? Filing it smooth will help with wind resistance, but will further unbalance the prop, if not done in conjunction with 'formal' balancing. The best you can hope for is a reasonably unstable flight. The worst can be left to imagination.
Short of Balancing, getting a new set couldn't be a bad thing, although some folks still recommend balancing them too. I haven't, but it's on the list of things to get.
I was going to point you in the direction of another thread regarding your props stuck on.... but i see that you have already posted on that. Using a filter strap tool will hold the motor without damaging the motor while you remove the prop.
I would recommend getting your own balancer then you can ensure they are balanced correctly... They are suppose to be balanced from the factory but if you place them on a balancer it does not look like it.

tyuyrt: Hello, I just installed a new GPS with lid - it only works when the lid and cable are dangling down the side of the drone; as soon as I close the lid the lights flash yellow red and green and I cannot take off. I'd appreciate any insights.

chris: marksdrone: just had the same issue with mine. It may be the accelorometer that you need to calibrate first and then do the compass after that.
