I bought prop guards for my Air 2 when I first got it. I have only used them once, and now they are just collecting dust. My money would have been better spent on something else.

One of the conditions for flying over people is prevention of lacerations. Propeller guard is one of them. Another one is automatic propeller stop.

Please cite where that "condition" for use of prop guards is written. I have yet to find an FAA reference.

Also might be useful by saving props when flying around trees (accidents happen even with the best of us).

That is the reason I bought mine, and I have found that improving flying skills is a sure prevention of harm to your drone. I might be proven to be wrong, if so that would be an expense for my account.
