    Hi guys, have a look at my "Easy Snap-On Prop Guards":



    No more screws and just few seconds to mount and unmount 4 propeller guards on the Phantom 3!

    If you have a 3D printer you can download the free STL model at:

    I wonder if these reduce the flight time as on the FC40?

    Any info on this please?

    I know... Anyway, if you don't have a 3D printer, the "Easy Snap-On Prop Guards" (4 pcs.) are available for € 22.90 EUR + shipping.

    You can find more info at the following Thingiverse page:

    Each 3D-printed propeller guard weighs about 21 grams, moreover they are more aerodynamic than the original ones since they have a closed tubular structure.
    So the total flight time might be reduced less than 1 minute.

    Thanks Giuseppe. Handy info. The guards on the FC40 reduced flying time by 2.45 minutes on average - just in case you wanted to know. :)

    Very nice design, Giuseppe! I don't use prop guards, but I may print these out just to have a set on standby in the event I ever change my philosophy on them.

    Last weekend I tested a different type of material, the Zortrax Z-ULTRAT filament, and the results were great!

    So, it is now possible to order the "Easy Snap-On Prop Guards" with these materials and colors:
    Z-HIPS (Black, Grey, White)
    Z-ULTRAT (Black, Ivory, Brown, Green, Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue)


    The price is still the same for any combination of materials and colors ;)
    Please note that, where not differently specified, default material is Z-HIPS and default color is White.

    Have a look at my Thingiverse page for info about costs and shipping methods:

    I really like the snap on guard idea better then the screw mount. Any way of getting these in the states?
