I got an R50 boom shipped to me in a crash kit, and this is how it looked:

Would you use it?

They're sending me a new one, just wondering if I should trash it, or maybe save it for a time in which I may need a boom.

I don't see any structural problems based on the pictures.
The scratches look to be primarily cosmetic.
That being the case I would use it.
You can alway take some paint and touch it up.

I flown with worse That is unacceptable condition if you bought it new though. I would send it back. Why pay full price for a scratch and ding part?

you can't really tell, but it is dented a bit.

And yes, that's why I called on it because I bought new. But I have to say something for the customer service - it rocks..They're sending me two new ones. Awesome.

again, it's not just a scratch, it's dented in. It's almost flat on that side. Hard to see without holding it and looking for yourself.

TurboRacer,

If you didn't put the "X" there the Quality Control group probably did. That one may have been marked for discard. It looks like very minor damage; I've seen a lot worse flying.

Sounds like they're making good...I'd keep that one as a spare (Bonus ) .

Is there any way to show how much of a dent there is, it is kind of hard to tell by the pics

I personally would get a socket that is the size of the boom and push it through. It will straighten the small dent out, from the insode, and you would have no problem. I have done this a few times, and it works well.

When you practice autos, use that boom and remove your fin, fin clamp and boom struts.

I love practicing autos, and I suck at them. So If I keep doing it past the 10th auto, I always boom strike taking out the boom, spindle and one blade (only those because the fin, clamp and stuts are removed).

keepin' it real

You can put a socket on a long extention and push it through to take out the dimple.

I'm with DrDan
Knock a socket through it and use it. I've done the same with a lot worse. No need to toss it because of that tiny ding.
