Hubsan Prop Guard

I suspect most Hubsan pilots fly indoors like wot I do.  In my case I use it to practise in the late evenings when work gets in the way of doing sensible things like flying multi-rotors  ::)

Anyroadup, I got fed up with smashing my props off each time I came into contact with "house stuff" and so looked around and found this nifty prop guard made by Hubsan and selling for around £5.  Cheap as chips, although relatively a high price against the quad itself  is another way of looking at it.  But it has made a massive difference, no longer am I hunting down escaped props (jeez, those little fellas can sure travel).

"Its better than bad, its good"

Current FCs: Pixhawk, APM 2.6, Naza M V2, Naze32, Flip32+ CC3D, KK2.1.5
Aircraft: miniMax Hex, DJI 550 (clone) TBS Disco, 450 Firefly, 250 Pro, ZMR250, Hubsan X4, Bixler 2


Just ordered one, every crash I have costs more than one of these guards to put right so it';s got to pay for itself almost immediately. I don';t damage the props so much as motor and frames.  Hopefully the frame will give the Hubsan added bounceability.


TBH when I had my Hubsan I found it quite a challenge to fly well indoors and was always wishing my house was a lot bigger, I don';t have a Hubsan anymore because mode 1';s are as rare as hens teeth and I would rather go outdoors and fly my 450. That said they are a very good little model and will help a great deal to learn to fly and as I found will fly pretty well outdoors in the right conditions.
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


I can get these 3D printed on my step-son;s new makerBot 3D Printer too!
Along with replacement chassis!


DJI Mavic Pro
Tarot 680 Pro Hex
450 (Flamewheel clone) x 4
Hubsan X4
CS022 Mini Quad


Just fitted one and guess what?  It works!  It bounces off wardrobes, it bounces off walls and no damage at all.  Trigger';s Broom might just have seen the last of the soldering iron.


I have ordered one along with another new body because I broke one of the arms (again) Hopefully it will make it a bit more "door Frame" proof.

The man serving me in the canteen said "Look, You can see the face of Jesus in the Margarine" The Asian guy next to me replied "I can't believe it's not Budda"


Pity we can';t print replacement motors for those bloody things
Not much kit, but what I have I like
Armattan Tilt 2, Morphite 180, Quark 150, Decapitated NanoQX


Replacement motors?  Ebay';s full of them.


Disregard my last, I';ve just read what you wrote, not what I thought you wrote.  Slaps forehead on the way to the naughty corner.


The prop guard is great, but you have to be careful that it doesn';t work upwards in a crash and block the prop. I had that happen and since the prop wouldn';t move when I went to take off again it burnt the motor out :(


My daughter (7) got one of these for Xmas, the trick with indoor flying is to get it up high as wash from walls, sofas, etc plays havoc with it.
Micro Titan Motors
SN02a ESCs
Runcam Sky (with servo adjustable tilt)

Cheerson CX-10 ;-)

Taranis Transmitter


Yes, if you have an X4 the prop guard is a very cheap essential. It';s also great fun watching it suck itself to the ceiling without damaging the props. LOL ;)


These are available from First Person View for I think £1.97 + p&p
