Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Blade

Blade:
"My bump into the tree would have broken blades and surely resulted in a crash."
_
"Nothing wrong with these blade gards, I should have got the larger size because I already upgraded to the 9 props"
_
"I don't know what the damage would be but the blades still stick over 1 4 and would hit whatever it bumped up against."
_
"Still hit a tree and broke one but saved my blades"
_
"Although it will not precipitate the end of life as we know it, any contact trends to damage the blades and anything in contact with the blades."
_
"They do protect the blades pretty well, but they are not very strong."
_
"Great protectors for the blades on a very expensive present."
_
"These are good guards but only work if you scale down to 6 blades instead of 9"
_
"Tree and a bush both jumped right out in front of me - blades got some green, but overall I was able to escape because I had the guards on."
_
"Great idea to protect the blades as well as other people."

Crash

Crash:
"fit my DJI 1 broke on first crash but thats what they are there for and also why they are cheap."
_
"made the Quad unstable, crash and the gaurds broke, props stick out a 1 4 past the guards so it brakes the tip of them off if you hit a wall."
_
"The first time I crashed into something one of the guards broke in two places."
_
"I bought these a few months ago, after several times of unexpected crashes, they finally broke so I decided to buy another pair."
_
"I had a pretty nasty crash today and shattered 2 of them."
_
"My bump into the tree would have broken blades and surely resulted in a crash."
_
"But it would be worse without the guards).They hold up pretty well to crashes -- it took a pretty significant one to break our first set."
_
"I had a pretty nasty crash today and shattered 2 of them."
_
"Must have if you love to crash you Phantom like I do, they will minimize your wear and tear on the motors and blades if you crash like a pro."
_
"good protection.... it protected the drone from a hard crash.."
_
"Bumped and crashed many times already with no damage thanks to these little guys! "

Flying

Flying:
"They are very flimsy and didn't last one day of flying."
_
"After removing the prop guards and replacing the broken props I flew it again and it is flying like it should."
_
"For those people that are simply crashing their Phantom hard into the ground and then wondering why these guards broke, those folks need to learn to fly a little better or get a different quad that doesn't mind being slammed into the ground."
_
"Prop guards are a must have as naturally the DJI Phantoms (not sure with the 2nd versions (blue color)) they all don't land perfectly upright unless you are really good at flying it or giving it some time to hover about 2' off the ground before calling a touch-down."
_
"Right now all propelers are save of my flies mistakes."
_
"I strongly advise a new owner like myself to get these for your new copter...it might save some damage as you're learning to fly."
_
"It is still functional afterwards but that is the only complaint I would have, otherwise they do exactly what they say they will do and I definitely recommend them for anybody learning how to fly a drone, you will need them."
_
"Breaks easy if you fly hard like me by two sets"
_
"They were much stronger and were easy to mount for flying and easy to detach for storing."
_
"they do not provide the supposed protection that are required for the Phantom 2 Visions factory installed Blades they are are not long enough .On my maiden flight I was able to fly My new Go Pro Hero 4 on the phantom for about five minutes with absolutely no issues until landed and a small breeze tipped the Phantom over slightly allowing all four blades to contact the ground in a rapid succession rendering them broken and useless .Measure your Bade length's before you purchase these Guards."
_
"The dji is so easy to fly."
