You are very naieve if you believe that any prop cannot be improperly installed and subsequently lost. While one would hope that Gori would be more communicative in this situation, it seems unreasonable to expect them to replace an expensive piece of gear that was installed by an amature with with unknown mechanical skills, under unknown circumstances. I understand your frustration in this situattion, but yours is the first complaint I have ever heard about either the props or the company. I believe Gori props to be well designed and manufactured equipment and would never hesitate to recommend them to a client.
