Tired of cutting your fingers during the testing stage of your quad.


Then make some thin cardboard short propellers.Your fingers will thank you.

Why not just without propellers?

Having been cut by a cardboard box once, like a paper cut but much worse, I can only imagine it's not much different than getting hit by a prop!

@Simone-You can hear better which motors accelerate also you can feel the air flow compared with no propeller.


@healthfatboy-I my case I could stop the propeller without any cuts.I'm using thin cardboard that is easy to bend.You can bend the propeller edge if you feel more comfortable.

Ohh the Papercuts!  ;-) 


I'd cut my leg on a plane prop way back, and I like the idea of visual markers.

ionut, how many fingers left?

I'm typing with my nose.Just kidding, I never had any injuries with the quad until now.

Good for you, Good Luck - :)

I use a 2 to 3 inch piece of string. and just hold in place with the nut tightened down. you can put your fingers directly in it and nothing..
