How heavy is the prop guard? Whatever weight it adds is sitting pretty high up and far from the center of gravity, so I would expect the flight characteristics to be impacted to some degree.

Brian even though the prop guards don't add a lot of weight they do add a lot of resistance to the whole aircraft. There would be a slight difference in the way it handles in wind.

Now I can bump into to things, and I dont have to buy new glasses ;P
I like them, Brian.
The set below has been coming by sailboat from Hong Kong for a month at least. 2-piece, snap on, seem secure. I'll give 'em a go shortly. Viva la gadgets.:rolleyes:

Weight? and do you still have lights?
Forgot to weigh, but fairly light. I ran it around outside in Rabbit, jerked it up high, this way and that without problem. Probably best use will be indoors. They are easy to snap on and off and do not interfere with lights or anything.

Those snap on guards are like playing with fire. From my experience they WILL come slightly unsnapped even without hitting anything and then you can watch and hear your prop getting eaten. At least with the H you will probably be able to land safely, but I find it ironic that the very thing that is supposed to save your prop is the thing that will destroy your prop. I never hit anything while using them but I would have to believe that as soon as they bump into something they will get knocked off into the prop.
