Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Blade

Blade:
"After shutting down the rotors and going inside to inspect the damage, I found that the two remaining guards, although intact, were pliable to the point that I feel any contact with them would cause the guards to push in towards the blades and cause certain damage failure."
_
"THEY WILL SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE LONG RUN, BLADES CAN GET $$$.TRUST ME I MADE THE MISTAKE OF THINKING I WASN'T GOING TO NEED THEM... 3 SETS OF BLADES LATER I BOUGHT THESE AND NEVER TAKING THEM OFF."
_
"The blades can still be damaged and people pets can still be hurt."
_
"Whether you're worried about chewing up blades as the phantom tips over during a not-so-soft landing, are worried about blades bumping into a tree, wall or building, or you just want an easier way to carry your Phantom to from launch locations, these are great."
_
")If you are breaking blades on take off or landing - You're doing it wrong."
_
"It has tilted over several times landing with these prop guards on and blades did not get damaged."
_
"Maybe they will come out with a product that is more durable but until then I'm just going to order more sets of blades and keep my Phantom far away from other objects."
_
"Of course both blades fractured as well and I had to hurry and shut the entire thing down."
_
"I was thinking that if these were built to protect the blades from branches and hard landings, they should have been able to withstand a few teeth...I was wrong."
_
"Good if your drone tips over on launch -- the blades won't get nicked on the grass."

Break

Break:
"Definitely my fault for hitting the tree, but I was very disappointed as to how easily these gaurds break."
_
"These are the best I've found and they don't break as easily as others do."
_
"And TRUST ME it is not fun to see your $1000 quadrotor fall out of the sky and break."
_
"A few times with hard hits, not only do they break but often times breaks the propeller when it fails."
_
"The guards will also break very easily as they are not very durable."
_
"Definitely my fault for hitting the tree, but I was very disappointed as to how easily these gaurds break."
_
"Yes, we all wish these prop guards were more durable as most will crack or break upon impact."
_
"They break very easily, which is the reason for the three stars."
_
"It takes while to fit them, because you have to unscrew eight bolts and attach the guards with eight new longer bolts only to find they break a bit too easily and oh yes, your quad no no longer fits into its case."
_
"I'm just bummed they break so easy."

Crash

Crash:
"They fit perfectly and protect the props from damage whenever the quad copter crashes or bumps into things (which is not infrequent, at least at first)."
_
"Only one fly crash , broken one guards , not god material for me I had to stick with glue, not original DJI"
_
"They were a very poor brittle plastic and broke during the first crash."
_
"Even watching all the videos on the net about how to fly my Phantom 2, on my first try I still crashed it and broke a prop."
_
"Broke three of them on the first crash, on the first flight."
_
"One one terrible crash into a high tree the impact knocked the attachment piece guard right off."
_
"These are cheap, they are strong, and nice, fits nicely on my case and held up to numbers of bumps and crashes."
_
"easy to connect saves your props from damage great idea this is the the contraption i need i crash a lot save my props"
_
"I've also had a few more violent crashes and, again, the prop guards have perfectly protected the props."

Flying

Flying:
"I bought these to prevent rotor damage to my quadcopter (DJI Phantom 2) while learning to fly it."
_
"Only one fly crash , broken one guards , not god material for me I had to stick with glue, not original DJI"
_
"Makes the Vision hard to fly in the wind"
_
"It does have a negative affect on how it flies."
_
"I would not recommend them for fast aggressive flying, they just seem to throw the aerodynamics and balance off for me."
_
"However, i give this 3 stars largely due to the negative impact this thing has on flying... having flown the drone without these for a few days i must say that after putting these on my phantom felt sluggish and less responsive, considering the cost of props and wanting to get the maximum output out of this machine i will most likely not be flying with these on for much longer.. but for training take offs and landing this is a good tool to have."
_
"When you get good at flying them, they are not needed."
_
"Came in handy on his first try at flying, worked great, glad i got them for him."
_
"Well, learning to fly it was incredibly easy."
_
"If you're going to be flying through trees and other obstacles at low altitudes, I'd recommend these."
_
"I've bumped into trees twice and the prop guards saved the day and I was able to keep flying uninterrupted."

Guard

Guard:
"and hit the spinning props, cracking the new prop guard and damaging my newly fitted props."

_
"Only one fly crash , broken one guards , not god material for me I had to stick with glue, not original DJI"

_
"Unfortunately, with my newbie status these guards have proven VERY essential."
_

Landing

Landing:
"I was thinking that if these were built to protect the blades from branches and hard landings, they should have been able to withstand a few teeth...I was wrong."
_
"I don't have an issue flying but there is that once in a while when the copter tips at landing, these work, but the first time the guard broke."
_
"However, on its first flight since installing them, the phantom tipped on its side while landing, something it has done many times before in windy situations with its extended landing legs, and broke both prop guards on the side that hit the ground."
_
"Horrible - they mess with the air flow during landing."
_
"Whether you're worried about chewing up blades as the phantom tips over during a not-so-soft landing, are worried about blades bumping into a tree, wall or building, or you just want an easier way to carry your Phantom to from launch locations, these are great."
_
")If you are breaking blades on take off or landing - You're doing it wrong."
_
"I was thinking that if these were built to protect the blades from branches and hard landings, they should have been able to withstand a few teeth...I was wrong."
_
"AND finally, use the bottom part (cut) off plastic hanger and tie wrap it to the skids, worked perfectly- wont ever tip over now when landing!"
_
"Pretty useless during a hard landing -- they deform and your blades get destroyed anyway."
_
"However, i give this 3 stars largely due to the negative impact this thing has on flying... having flown the drone without these for a few days i must say that after putting these on my phantom felt sluggish and less responsive, considering the cost of props and wanting to get the maximum output out of this machine i will most likely not be flying with these on for much longer.. but for training take offs and landing this is a good tool to have."
_
"Gives you that extra bit of confidence when taking off and landing and when flying nears trees etc."

_
"Even watching all the videos on the net about how to fly my Phantom 2, on my first try I still crashed it and broke a prop."
_
"I had to bend two of them in order for the propellers not to hit, which was fairly easy because the plastic is so thin."
_
"Yes, we all wish these prop guards were more durable as most will crack or break upon impact."
_
"It has tilted over several times landing with these prop guards on and blades did not get damaged."
_

Tree

Tree:
"The negative side to this is if the tree is very large, then your phantom will be up a couple stories in the air with no way to get it down."

"One one terrible crash into a high tree the impact knocked the attachment piece guard right off."

_
"When mounted and strung properly, I have hit tree branches and come out clean and clear."

_
"Gives you that extra bit of confidence when taking off and landing and when flying nears trees etc."
