    I have noticed when using prop Guards on the P4 that they effect the way the Drone stops. You have to be very steady when you bring the Drone to hoover from straight line approach. Is it because they effect the air flow of the props.

    Wind drag and weight. Although one advantage is it increases your LOS distance, most experienced pilots don't use prop guards unless they're flying in close quarters or inside.
