If anyone is worried about damage from those plastic props during calibration, just throw a pillow over the Phantom, don't worry, the pillow will be safe and the wife won't even know.
You will not have feathers all over the place either. The phantom motors are just one tiny step above rubber bands.
The only worry should be damage or injury from a flying Phantom, a Phantom that is out of control. But for calibration, don't worry, you finger will stop those plastic props with only a minor cut. Your Exacto knife will do much more damage than those weak motors.
I would not be posting such false information. I have the semi-rigid props on mine and in manual mode I will bet I could take your finger pretty much off. I have a nice chip taken out of my oak desk from a blade I will be happy to share with you.
I think it's time I shoot some video of my new food processor....
