Hello guys,

just for your info.
this week end, flying my c30 n2,I heard a strong noise, flouch flouch or something like this, I land immediately without damage (was 2nd flight after a rebuild). I found that the blade covering was too loose, it explode letting air enter into it and increase drag. Blade was new and standard wood set from kyosho. I take a look at all blade i have, quality of covering is bad compare to raptor, bad quality. But i was happy to recover my heli.....

Might have something to do with the cold, its cold in France to right?
The plastic would be more britle when its cold, maybe some snow? have been sucked up and hit the mains?

Just suggestions, glad you got it down in one piece!

I always use a heat gun and reshrink the covering before I use wood blades.
