Are propeller guards just for new pilots? In my opinion, the answer is no. I have been piloting drones for over 10 years and still use propeller guards from time to time. Just like many of the drones that DJI sells they have created some propeller guards for the Mavic 2 series. They are compatible with the Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Enterprise. Unlike the Mavic Air and Spark, the propeller guards do not come bundled in with the fly more kit and have to be purchased separately.

If you are a brand new pilot a set of propeller guards definitely is a good idea in the beginning until you get a good feel for the aircraft, they are not fool proof, but can help with some mishaps if you happen to graze a tree or wall. You have to keep in mind that if you are traveling at a high rate of speed having propeller guards on will have little effect if you happen to fly into a wall. They are more useful for slower movements or close proximity.

This leads me to my next point I think propeller guards are an excellent tool for seasoned pilots. Myself I like to film slow flowing shots threw forest and what I call proximity shots, this is where you fly very close beside an object. Both shoots look really cool but can come at a risk. Having a set of propeller guards installed on my Mavic 2 Pro definitely eliminates some of the risks if you happen to get a little to close to an object.

The DJI Propeller guards are lightweight and fold in half making it easier to pack in a backpack or drone case. In my experience, they have no effect of the flight or aircraft performance. They, however, are delicate so take care when installing and storing. You can watch our Youtube demonstration of the DJI Mavic 2 propeller guards in action.
