The crack is due to blade folding in and hitting the blade grip.
put on some CA or JB weld, and since you are not flying 3-D or turning 1800+ I say let M' rip.

Did you tip the heli over and cause the blades to fold in?

you don't have to admit it but if you did look at the grip very closely to see if it is damaged.

If you must fix and fly them I'd sand the repair area and use slow dry epoxy and fiberglass cloth and glass at least a 1/2 inch out from the damage to strengthen and spread the load. Rebance will be necessary.

If it's gonna happen it'll happen up there!

I am sure that i did the damage with them on the helo. I remember the nick on the top, but dont remember the side bottom looking like that. The woodies that i have now on there have a very simular nick from a botched auto attempt.
I looked at all the grips that i have, now i have 3 hawks, and several extra grips. I have also had a recent run of "stupid idea" crashes. I didnt find any grips that had damage. But then again, i have thrown out a few (grips) since i flew those blades last.

They're totally trashed, don't use them!! I'll pm you my address so that you can send them to me (for free) and I'll fly them!
