Would be interested to hear from anyone who has these to see if they stay on in high winds.. i worry what dangers there are if one or more flies off mid flight.

In my opinion this is a risky design.

Design looks pretty sturdy from the video. You might show it better by hanging the bird by the guards or something similar.

In my opinion this is a risky design.
Main objective of this project was precisely to ensure sealing of the prop-guards in case of impacts, also allowing to mount and unmount these accessories just in few seconds without using screws.
I guess that in case of strong impact, the Phantom could be much more damaged by prop guards mounted using the screws that hold in place the motors in their plastic bases...
Anyway, I made these prop-guards with a professional-grade 3D printer (ZORTRAX M200), using high-quality impact resistant materials (Z-HIPS).
The grip is very strong and elastic enough to allow the perfect snap-on of the prop guards.
I tried to drive the drone against some walls at different speeds and angles: the results were very satisfactory and the prop-guards have never detached from the arms of the Phantom 3.

Hi guys, last weekend I tested a different type of material, the Zortrax Z-ULTRAT filament, and the results were great!

So, it is now possible to order the "Easy Snap-On Prop Guards" with these materials and colors:
Z-HIPS (Black, Grey, White)
Z-ULTRAT (Black, Ivory, Brown, Green, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue)


The price is still the same for any combination of materials and colors ;)
Please note that, where not differently specified, default material is Z-HIPS and default color is White.

Have a look at my Thingiverse page for info about costs and shipping methods:

Hi guys, have a look at the new available colors:


As already said in the initial post, I have personally designed this accessory and made it available for FREE at the following Thingiverse.com page:

DJI Easy Snap-On Prop Guards by giufini

However, if you don't have a 3D printer, the "Easy Snap-On Prop Guards" are available as a ready to use kit for your Phantom 3 at € 22.90 EUR + shipping.
They are made with a professional-grade 3D printer, using high-quality impact resistant materials for best results.

I imagine a guy named Giuseppe Finizia is in like a fancy tux, and then the butler says, 'may I present, Giuseppe Finizia' and everyone is all, 'whoa....' As you come down the stairs with some hot younger woman on your arm, and the crowd is all quiet.
