I have a slight ding on one blade (600mm)on my Raptor 50. I can get some Century woodies (600mm) p/n CN2324 on short order. I could also get the ACE 600mm OEM, but that would take several more days. The ding doesn't seem that signficant, but I would feel better if I replaced them.


Thanks
Dave

Dave,

ALWAYS replace damaged blades, they are too cheap not to. If you ever see a heli loose a blade in flight, you will always remember it.

Im running a set of fiberglass mavrick blades on my Raptor 50 and will never go back to wood. They run around $55.

99% of the time, blades are interchangable... I've used stock woodies on my Raptor, then NHP Razor Pro's, Go-Quick, and V-Blades before.. just make sure they're balanced well.

Thanks. I went ahead and ordered the ACE OEM replacements from Ron Lund's. The Century blades at my LOH and Ron's were out of stock. I should be back flying by Wednesday afternoon. This model has worked for me without a hitch, and have been really surprised with the durability of this helicopter.
