Sorry my heading should have said "New Inspire1 Prop Guards" Hi all, Received my new props guards the other day and did a test flight. My first thought is that they are huge, which in reality was to be expected given the size of the props. The weight was not bad at all but again when installed it made the Inspire which is already big look bigger. That being said one of the cons was installing them as they provide you with four velcro straps to attach each prop guard along with two screws for each prop. Then uninstalling them would necessitate undoing the screws. I just used the velcro straps and they held the guards on very tightly. This in itself takes some time. In a high wind you would feel a drag in resistance from them in fighting the wind. Flying was easy but a speedster would not care for then I do believe. I fly slow for video and photography so being speedy I am not. If time is of the essence forget it as it does take time to install. That being said if you are in a enclosed area that may require possibly hitting a wall or object i do think it will be beneficial in saving props. I have thought of returning them for a refund but on second thought will keep them just in case. I will fly without them on a normal basis but they are costly at 99.00. I did get them from Peter Ellin at http://www.acesdeals.biz My two cents worth.
