Help printing a drone prop.

So I am trying to print small 3 bladed drone propellers. There is too much propeller pitch to print without support, but the blades are so thin I can't break off the support without breaking the prop. Advice would be greatly appreciated.

What slicer are you using? If you're using Prusaslicer they have a detachable supports option. Another option only works if you have a dual extruder printer, you can use a dissolvable filament for supports and regular PLA or ABS for the propellers. Best of Luck
