    Hi all. Can anyone recommend any decent quick release prop guards? I currently have the fixed DJI ones to avoid a cheap quick release set flying off but obviously won't fit in my case unless I keep taking them off.

    Many thanks
    Dan

    I would get a set that allows you to remove the top cover without having to mess with the motor mount bolts. In other words, you need a prop mount that allows access to the Philips head screw near the tip of the wing.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at those two and see if they are available here in the uk.

    Not saying this with any undertone of judgement on others but I won't fly a drone without them. Very rarely do they appear in my camera shots unless I'm giving it 100% throttle in opposite directions - which to be fair I'm usually in 'play' mode for rather than filming :)
