I have a T-rex, and it seems you can buy wooden blades, fiber blades or carbon blades. I haven't yet got to the stage where I would start to think about carbon blades, but my discovery is that wooden blades break on the slightest impact, whereas fiber blades are more resilient and seem to fly much better (and I do balance and set the tracking for my wooden blades). And they're only a bit more expensive.

Yet most helis come with stock wooden blades. Why? Is there anything good about them at all?

K, the stock plastic blades are almost unbreakable but it is very soft and easily out of track. However, it is pretty good to practice hovering. Wooden blades are more rigid and better handling in faster movement but not good as carbons.
