Prop guards are really good.
Really good for getting in the picture when you are photographing
Really good for catching the wind like a sail
Really good for slowing your Phantom and eating battery time
Really good for making it harder to fly against the wind
Really good for giving you a false sense of security.

If prop guards seem like a good idea ....
A better idea is to fly somewhere else away from obstacles.

Never used them can't tell you. But if you need them, better practice flying more...

Yeah veteran pilots don't use them.

The only good thing with them is you can see your AC from further away.  So in that sense, it lengthens the LOS radius you can fly legally - in the US.

I use Lume Cubes for ultimate VLOS... YMMV. Haha

They work marvellously in day light as well. ;-)
