I have 2018 Matrice 200 with about 100 hours on it. Recently during bootup noticed both of the CCW propellers make an audible noise and wobble/rock slightly when the drone completes its motor/ESC "twitch" checks. I replaced propellers with new ones and the issue remains unchanged. With the prop mounted to the motor, there is about 1-2mm of play when you lift the tip of the propeller. Has anyone else experienced this on the M200?

I replaced prop mounts and propellers at around 200 Hours. This seemed to fix the issue as there was much less play/deflection up and down and side to side. I've put another 25 hours on the drone since the service and the problem is starting to return on the same motor! My takeaway is that both the props and mounts wear on one another so best to change both.
