thought the "auto control" sensor would sync up on the gimbal protector versus the floor (if you are talking about the CF one that goes between the legs)... Think there is a post here somewhere...Has anyone posted on a camera guard for the 3 like the one for the Plus
I always flew my Phantom 1 with propguards, and they certainly saved me more than their cost in props, especially when I was learning.Propguards significantly handicap your Phantom's performance, show up in frame and cause more problems (crashes) than they prevent.
I'm not afraid of damaging my props. I'm more concerned about hurting myself (or other people) if the quad comes out of control. My finger has had a close encounter with a "erratic quad" once (not a Phantom) and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.If you think you need to use propguards, you really need a different place to fly.
They used them here, I have no need for them for how I use the Phantom but it's up to the individual.That's an example of what I meant .. If you think you need propguards - you're flying in the wrong place.
Rule 1 of safe flying: Don't fly where bumping into people or trees etc is a possibility. Keep well away from people and obstacles.
