So, finally made a section just for me, how nice, need to go back and put all mine in here, until then, here is my latest, this what happens when the heli tips over with CF blades, they survive..after chewin' your heli to pieces, lol.




Hint: use woodies if you have a tendancy to crash.

Nice One Surprised
I've dented more then a few booms, even had one break in flight, but never actually sliced one open. Ouch!
Right on about the woodies. I flew only them for a long time before I got brave enough to go with CF blades. A good set of woodies is better then any set of cheap CF blades IMO.

Hiya DT, Very Happy
I like your thinkin' Cool
It wasn't so much as being cheap, actually these are expensive CF, but..the thing about them that I found out and is the point I am trying to make to any newbies (like me) out there, is...apparently, or in my case anyway, CF blades are extremely strong, I have had 3 or maybe 4 crashes with the CF blades on, and everytime the blades survived but they caused massive damage to my heli because they did not break, instead of breaking they transferred the energy to other parts of the heli and broke those, like the head, or parts of the head, and the boom,..... instead of breaking and easing the damage, they caused the main shaft to bend and the feathering (spindle) shaft to twist, and or break the seesaw block, in other words my damage would have been much, much less if I had used woodies, cuz they would have broke instead of transferring the damage to other parts.
Like DT says, woodies for me until I can fly without crashing due to my inability. Crying or Very sad
