I wondered if anybody has compared the performance difference?
Yes but only anecdotaly.
The guards add weight, reduce efficiency, and increase drag.
They are also believed to contribute to the formation of VRS in certain situations.
I dont know why anyone would run prop gaurds? The the cost of prop gaurds, you could buy about 4 sets of props.
Prop guards are to protect the props. Don't you get that?.
I've used them to fly inside my warehouse and I've also flew outside with them. They really slow it down when on and make it wobble when coming down. I've watched videos with them on and off and they also make flight time shorter. I would recommend using them if flying inside and take off when outside. Any little bit of wind when there on makes it wobble and shake alot.
I get that they cost $30, and break on first contact. I would rather break a $3 prop.
If the prop broke at 30' you might be buying more than a new prop.
Interesting to hear about guards exacerbating vortex ring state and also the wobble.
Well I have them but will keep for special occasions.
