Product Highlights
  • Adds Additional Element of Safety
  • Protects Propellers from Collisions
  • Fits Phantom 2 and Phantom 2 Vision

The DJI Prop Guards for Phantom 2 and Phantom 2 Vision is a set of four, one guard for each propeller. The guards help protect the propellers from collisions as well as add an additional element of safety.

Because of the larger rotor diameter and other design changes from the original Phantom, the original prop guards will not fit the Phantom 2 or Phantom 2 Vision. This set contains the specific guards that are the appropriate size and have the appropriate fitting for the Phantom 2 and Phantom 2 Vision.

    Smart to use when Phantom 2 blades are activated. Semi-protects fingers, which semi-protects the props themselves. Also protects props from close encounters with trees, shrubbery, and just about anything else. Very light-weight but plenty sturdy. Easy and quick to install for flights and to uninstall for storage. DJI should be include these as standard equipment.

    PLEASE NOTE that these DJI Prop Guards are for the LONGER blades of the Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision, and Phantom 2 Vision+. The prop guards for earlier Phantom models are too small to work.

    The product itself meets expectations. It is easy to mount and if you have a little landing tipover/similar, it will help save your props.

    However, for Phantom 2s, it is not recommended to fly with these all the time.

    Firstly, I get about 2 to 2:30 extra flying time with no prop guards. (I keep a log of all my flights.)

    But most importantly, prop guards create instability. Especially on gusty days, you will find that occasionally, your Phantom will encounter instability that you would otherwise not encounter if you didn't have the prop guards. Particularly on directional descents. With no prop guards, Phantom 2 cuts through the wind with no issues. With prop guards, you better be extra careful.

    As such, I do not recommend flying with these all the time. If you have a specific situational need for prop guards, use them. But don't just put them on for all flying.

    Get these for your Phantom, especially if you're a new RC flyer. Can save your props and might even be much more safer around people. About 2 minutes to install or remove with the proper screwdriver.

    Comments about DJI P2V Prop Guard For P2 & P2V:

    Without prop guard I would have to have bought 3 or 4 sets of propellers already, with the strings
    of course. Now I will install life jackets on the running gear when I fly over the water........

        Comments about DJI P2V Prop Guard For P2 & P2V:

        I bought my Phantom from a reseller that put together a big package with lots of extra parts, including Prop Guards. Since they were the first Prop Guards I'd ever seen, I didn't realize how flimsy they were until my Phantom drop out of the sky from about 30 feet and all 4 were destroyed.

        Then, I went to B&H to buy replacements and they sent me authentic DJI Prop Guards and they are MUCH beefier than my original. They already survived one impact with no problem.

        Comments about DJI P2V Prop Guard For P2 & P2V:

        I'm sure this is a great addition to the quadcopter, but the problem is it's not easy to take these off and put them back on. If you don't have to backpack your quadcopter these would be great, but if you have to take the blades off of the QC you're stuck with having to unscrew the guards. I have yet to put these on for that reason.

          Prop guards arrived ASAP. Set up and attached right out of the box. I needed a separate Allen Key to unscrew the short screws and attached the 4 separate Prop guards to the model with the new longer screws.
          Made short work of the job and took it flying right after. DJI even included extra screws. Delighted by the quick delivery from B&H !!

                    I purchased prop guards when I purchased my Phantom 2 V+ and I believe it was a very wise decision. I've only had one tip over landing but it saved the props. One consideration is that I beleive the added weight of the prop guards causes the Phantom to use up the battery quicker. I am getting 15 - 20 minutes versus 20 - 25 minutes. However, I am willing to sacrifice 5 minutes to save my expensive OEM props.

                    They do the job I guess, but are not able to sustain even a moderate hit to any hard object without busting. I hit my garage door on takeoff, and broke two of the three struts on one guard. I really didn't feel that the impact was that great. I suspect that the best application is for use around dense foliage where you might brush weeds or a few leaves.I will replace the broken guard, but I hope this will not become a regular thing. When the guards are going for about $[$] for four, and props are only about $[$] a pair, you have to wonder if it's worth it.

                        I started descending and it lost control and crashed. This happend 3 times. Luckily I was only about 2o feet up testing the props. I looked it up and it is called prop wash. If you don't want to lose your expensive P2 do not install these.

                          These prop guards are great for protecting your investment, but once installed, your copter becomes so big that it won't fit in any case/backpack! Each of the 4 guards is held in with 2 little screws that are super easy to lose, and require a tool to remove. If you plan on leaving the guards on, then you'll find them useful. If you plan on removing them after each flight so you can easily cary/store your quadcopter, you'll hate these. A smarter, quick-release system would be so much better and deserving of 5 stars.

                          I am still very new with flying the copter. I already had a few crashes where I think the prop guards helped. The guards themselves are easy to install. Its a little less clear how to install the string that comes with them, at least in terms of getting it tight. One key item to know is that the copter does not fit inside the case that came with it when the prop guards are on.

                              The prop guards for the Phontom 2 are something you should buy without hesitation. I bought them and installed them in 5 minutes before my first flight and they paid for themselves right away. Although easy to fly, the Phantom still takes a little getting used to. I did crash mine into a tree, twice, it just bounced off the branches and I never damaged a prop due the the guards. It also makes it safer to operate when flying around other people. Great insurance at a low price!

                              A security must. Helps somewhat to protect props and humans from damage. Ideally, this would be a single plastic unit, negating the need for flimsy strings attaching one prop guard to the other and would not weight much more. Should be made thicker at the ouside round rims to protect better. Made more to protect props from damage, less to protect humans.

                                The guards are necessary for two reasons: 1) saves buying new propellers every time you bump into something or land off center; 2) safety feature to avoid injury if spinning propellers come in contact with skin.

                                  Comments about DJI P2V Prop Guard For P2 & P2V:

                                  Seems like they do the job, but I wish these would snap on securely instead of having to mount with small screws.

                                  The reason? All the prop guards need to be removed each time this goes into the recommended case (2700WPHA2) and this is a big inconvenience. I can't blame the case for this issue. If the guards released quickly, I'd just throw them in the case.
