I have 4 pair of the CF blades from flying hobby and they are all well worth the $45.00 price tag.

I also did the basic design for the beta versions of the just released Like90 CNC weighted wooden blades. I have been flying these since February with great results. Like the other Like 90 blades they fly well and are tough as hell. I know the production versions will be even better as Walt Ferar has aided Colin in the refinement of the design and should have a pair to fly within a few days.

The blades from LIKE90 are really nice. Much stiffer than the helihobby woodies and probably as stiff as the evoflight fiberglass blades which I also have. Don't have any carbon blades yet, I am waiting for the MAH carbons. My MAH blades that I had on pico pro took so much abuse and never broke. They survived many a crashes. I even sold that heli to a friend who has beat the crap out of it( nose in full speed to the dirt) and still flies those same MAH's.

The Like 90 Blades are nice..they fly almost as well as the CF blades(almost. I've tried every blade from Hell-e-hobbies wood,cf,Like 90's, and the stock foamies. Now what I am about to say next will draw criticism I'm sure, but the solid wood 20.00 cheapies from Flying-hobby.com are absolutely the toughest things out there. They don't fly all that great(comparable to the stock foam) but man can they take a beating. I've busted a set of everything I've tried but these won't die. I've crashed hard into concrete and they barely chip the corner of the trailing edge. I bought them with the heli and they are on it right now. They won't go away and I know they will always be there when their cool and popular Cf brothers shred on boom strikes and the like 90's snap after laying over at sub hover speeds. They are definitely worth the 20 bucks if only as a backup set.

Get rid of the dog J/K I like the blades from HH but I noticed today one of mine broke when I had a tip over from a not so great landing. 19 bucks compared to 27 or 45 if they were other blades.

Dudes! Get a set of woodies from helihobby. I think they are called "wide aftermarket blades. Just go to their site and you will find them in the blade catagory. They are really wide(extreme lift at lower RPM's) and the are tough. They are not hollow or lightened, they are made from one single peice of laser cut basswood covered in white shrink. I've had tip overs in my concrete driveway at substancial RPM's and all I notice is a little shrinkwrap gone and wood exposure but no chips, cracks etc. and they are only $19.99. I fly with $50.00 glass blades as well(grass or soft surface only) but when flying or landing in a potential abrasive terrrain, use these tough mothers.

SAB have carbon blades for the zoom that fly great compared to the foam stock ones....

SAB 28cm Carbon Main Blades - Zoom 400
http://www.modelhelicopters.co.uk/a...Blades_Sab.html

obviously you may not wantto order from the uk.....but you should be able to source them in the US.

These blades have been crashed 3 times now (radio interferance from speed controller) and are only slightly chipped, impressive considering 2 impacts on concrete.

You crashed them like a big girl....you also crashed them when you shouldn't have....the way the thing flies you'd think it had a CSM gyro in it.........

read the previous posts you tool I was praising the blades for standing up to the impacts of your dodgy flying.....maybe you should change your name to "Galifrey", give lots of advice and never fly......but that might just be down to his CSM gyro
