    Hi guys, hours away from purchasing my first fc40.
    Still can´t make my mind up on the "ramp up period"
    Prop guards

    pros
    let you ramp up on taking off and landing without consecuences on tipping
    let you bounce of stuff solid objects (not trees)

    cons
    reduce flight time?
    generate tubulence on vertical descent


    so I though maybe I can use the stock props on my ramp up period and when ready (or destroyed) moove to the PH2 props? in order to gain flight time? the only con I see is that maybe the stock prop will brake faster and I'll be stuck with no props...

    OPINIONS WELCOME!!!!

    you can put the 9 in prop guards on it, best props I found are the 9450. get a set, thing is, when taking off, punch it up to 10 - 15 ft. let it hover for a few seconds, so no right stick until your up. most tip overs come from moving right stick on the ground, punch it up. plus the landing gear is to small. need some tubing zipped to them, makes it more stable on the ground, I use fusuno landing gear, I can land on the side of a cliff with them, and they look hot , good luck,,, punch her up :D
