Best thing to do is to search "Quick release prop guards" on YouTube, there are lots of videos showing them.I'm interested in close in work ie flying within a few feet of structures for inspections etc. I've been practicing and so far so good but it's a bit tricky at times. It occurs to me that prop guards would be ideal "just in case" a gust of wind takes it in a little bit closer than desirable. Can I ask, how do the quick release guards work, these would seem the best solution for me. Do they simply clip on? Also, of those that advocate their use, are there any that can be recommended as not overly affecting stability?

Hmm.. hadn't actually thought of that. What a good idea. Something to investigate I think. Thank you.I USE PROP GUARDS AND STRING ALL THE TIME.
THE STRING MAKES THE QUAD BOUNCE OFF THE OBJECT AND THE QUAD CAN
IN A PINWHEEL CRASH NOTHING GETS BROKE !!!
Im one of those people. Completely ruined my 3 standard by making the idiot mistake of putting the prop guard screws in without the guards. Ruined all 4 motors and shorted the board.All I can say is if you take them off PLEASE USE THE STOCK (smaller) SCREWS we have had to many people have motor problems
And I'm not a fan of them
Can you point to a source for this incident?I wonder if the young guy who had his carotid artery severed and died when a wayward quad crashed into him as he walked through a US park may have survived if the quad had guards fitted.
