You can always us the prop guards, but I'm not sure how much that will help from ceiling contact. Check it out.

As for flying inside a cave, you better be very skilled at flying ATTI, it will drift side to side easily, however you shouldn't have any wind to push it around. You won't have RTH, so keep it in view at all times. Keep the collision avoidance turned on.

With prop guards i have read that collision avoidance is turned off.. :(

Yes, you're right. With prop guard CA doesn't work. So if the prop guard don't offer ceiling protection you should leave them off and use CA. You'll be very limited in a cave, however I've seen it done if the cave is large.
