    I would like prop guards that protect from both below and above the props. This would protect the props when the drone flips over. Has anyone seen prop guards that do this?

    You will stop the airflow so not a good idea.
    Why is your drone flipping over? If it does it on landing use hand catch. If it does it when taking off use a flat piece of wood or something to give a level surface.

    Double sided prop guards would be double the weight and even more windage.
    Not very practical and there's no real need for them.
