I got fed up with taking props off when doing firmware upgrades/setup etc

So I just had a bright idea...   - LOL its works great

Duvet - The quickest way to say Duck Down !

I stick elastic bands over mine to stop them blowing in the wind when im travelling with the hexs on the back of the pickup truck.

I';ve tied long socks over my props before to stop then spinning up when working on the quadcopter.

It';s always going to be safer to remove them first, but there are some cases where you are constantly working on something, having to remove and reattach props, when having something like this saves a lot of time.

Just be sure you know what you are doing so that if one does spin up you don';t get sliced - i';ve seen some nasty injuries.

The other option that works for me when I';m just changing PID settings or similar - i turn the quadcopter upside down on the ground. It wont fly downwards so as long as your foot isn';t underneath, it wont go flying off anywhere if it does happen to power up.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.
