Hello! So I remember when I bought my Phantom 4 Pro, the guy in the shop told me to be carefull when catching the drone leg because there are antennas which i can broke. Is that true?

If you break the antenna in the leg while hand catching your Phantom you have more to worry about than the antenna.

Hello and good day Filip Kyzek. Thank you for the inquiry and for sharing. The antenna of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is located on the legs of the said drone. There could be a possibility that the antenna of the drone might get damage when hand catching the DJI Phantom 4 Pro. Just a friendly reminder that it is not recommended hand catching the said drone. Please do not stop the drone by hand, it could be dangerous. For your safety, please land the drone and stop the motors by sticks, or use the auto landing function. Thank you for your support.

Can obviously be very dangerous.  Not recommending nor do I know "Joey", but here's the first clip I found. Fast forward to 4:00. The gear attachment point looks to be a weak area. If I were to hand catch, I don't think I'd grab a leg.

I have to hand catch 90% of the time because of the terrain I am on. If you properly care for and maintain your drone then there is no danger. This means actually inspecting for cracks and the all time-consuming task of using a screwdriver.
Make sure to grab up high near the OBS sensor in the the crook of you thumb and hand, not just your fingers.
