    Question: Why do we need motor caps?

    Most of the time air with env pollutes is pushed to the motors when phantom is flying, other times it's kept in case.

    I got these because they cover all the motor. I got the caps because when the bird is transported in a carrying case the foam rubs on the props quick mounts, they have sharp edges and it chews the foam wich inturn may fall into the motor.(not good) Buy Products Online from China Wholesalers at Aliexpress.com

    When using a backpack, those plastic prop clips will catch on fabric, wearing holes into the fabric, depending on the backpack you buy. Some backpacks don't use snug fit inserts, so the craft can move around more. If you happen to lay the backpack down upside down, or it falls on the lid upside down, motor caps can protect those plastic prop clips from damage also.

    I bought the silicon sleeve type, they work great. $6-8. Since the round cup at the top doesn't touch the prop clips, and offers a soft impact if hit, I think these protect better than the type that lock onto the clips.

    Grab the silicone ones not the 3D printed ones.

    I got a set from Mike and let me tell you... they are REALLY good. It covers the quick release mechanism, they wont fall off because they actually engage and the quality is top. Thanks Mike, another top quality great product. :)

    PS: I have a set of silicon sleeves... they are crap to me.

    I have the motocap red 3D printed ones, two seem ok, but the other two I think I nearly broke the motor off trying to push and twist them on. To much brain damage to call and argue about a 14.98 dollar part / parts

    You should get a set of my motor caps. They fit perfectly.
