You will need to check them over VERY carefully to make shaw there is no damage to them then you will have to balence them! Why dont you just get a cheap pair of grp RIPMAX bladesfrom the local model shop? plus the crap plastic covering wont come off!

Blades

It's a good idea to check the balance on all the blades you intend to run

Fly it ! Crash it ! Rebuild it ! Repeat as needed !! Everett

In my experience, the blades are *fairly* closely matched in the package, in sets (some much better than others!). If you happen to get some odd blades (same type / manufacturer) that are close, you could balance them by adding weight to the lighter one. You will need to be familiar with the process for matching the weights, and for matching the CGs (at least, span wise). But, if the blade pair is too far off from each other, it may take a large amount of tape - could be impractical.
