4" (3D PRINTED - High Strength/Light Weight Armadillo Version) Universal Ducted Propeller Guards (REMOVABLE TOP!) (FULL SET + 1 FREE!)
The SAME UDP-Guards the FPV Drone community has grown to know and love, but this version is made with an extra special new material that is EXTREMELY DURABLE and also LIGHTER WEIGHT!! Similiar to the strength of TPU while still retaining stiff structural integrity!
This new raw material costs 4 times as much and takes double the time to print as the original guards material, but it SHINES so much in this application that it had to be used and I did my best to keep the price low and fair. As always the quality and work put into the product you receive is worth the price paid. I treat everything as if it were my own, and I only fly the best!
*Quieter Flight Noise
*Increased Load Abilities
*Smoother Flight Performance
*Aesthetic AND Functional Drone Accessory
*FREE SET of HQ Props & Longer Bolts INCLUDED!
Frame: 4" or larger
Motors: 11xx - 17xx 9x9 - 12x12
Easily convert your current 4" or larger micro drone into a safe smooth powerhouse! Indoor or outdoor, HD cam or just fun flying! They fit any 11xx-14xx 9x9 to 12x12 (4) screw bolt pattern and are shipped with multiple sizes of rubber spacers to lock in the perfect height while also dampening the whole system and keeping tension on the bolts to keep them tight.
Any frame that holds a 4" prop will fit these UNIVERSAL DUCTED PROPELLER GUARDS! Simply bolt them onto the bottom of each arm with the motor bolts. When tightened, the bolts are then recessed to give you BUILT-IN non-metal landing skids (soo useful and FUN!) This set-up uses a 3" propeller in place of the bigger one and outperforms in almost every way! It lets the motors work less with the same performance which enables our propellers to handle a higher load and give better flight times because of the increased thrust and efficiency! They more than make up for the weight of themselves while providing safety and smoother flight feel.
Having these on will make your quad quieter too! Aero and sound wave flow was taken into consideration and implemented here, actually REDUCING prop noise! It's literally like magic and one of the best features about this design. The sounds aims up and down, reducing perceived side noise.
And THE most important feature of all.. SAFETY!! Before these I flew without protection and was sliced multiple times by a propeller blade, the worst being on my calf and that sent me on a mission to protect others from harm and to help give drones a good, safe name. These guards were months in the making, I literally put thousands of hours into making these what they are today.. And let me tell you - THEY DELIVER! So well in fact, that I've included running into myself as a test to show people how well they perform ;) That part is really true!
And although these things will shock you with how strong they are and can take more of a beating then I ever intended them to take, in no way am I going to tell you these things can't break! Anything is breakable! These guards are designed to break right before the arm would, to save you money and time. Replacing a guard is 6 screws, cheap and painless, while replacing an arm or even worse a unibody frame, can be a timely task and even a few days without flying! I've broke and had to order and wait to replace tons of micro parts before these prop guards and now it's just straight to the fun! And if I do crash too hard it's a super easy fix and it saves my frame and even props from breaking. (Note: the smaller size the guard/drone, the more durable it will be in crashes)
They come in a variety of colors! A perfect way to express yourself thru your drone! Coordinate GUARD COLORS with your PROPS to make the COOLEST, SMOOTHEST and most VERSATILE drone ever! Get creative and make your drone look as awesome as it flies!
Cinewhoop flying anyone?! No need to go out and buy a whole new drone to get great footage. These convert your current drone into a film making BEAST! Smooth out the flight of your current rig and carry that GoPro too for some amazing cinematography potential in a VERY LITTLE package!
There's really no downside to these. It's a win-win-win-win! If you fly 4"+ micro drones, then you need these. Either way they are now an invaluable tool in my filming/fun-safe-flying arsenal!
