I just cannot believe that the hard landing that I have on my T500 will break the Align blade near the root area. I have an unplanned autorotation due to the tail losing authority. The heli landed upright without any tipping over. There is not even a bent in the flybar and the feathering spindle. It did however break the front landing strut, but I just cannot believe that such the landing would also break the blade.

if it broke a skid what do you expect?. you should fly CF blades anyway on this heli FG's are a pain. teh 3dpro helidirect CF 430's are cheaper then align FG's

in a year and a half i have only been through 2 feathering shafts there pretty tough and often i dont have to replace after a wreck.

These are the best low cost blades that I have tried. They fly just as good as the expensive Align blades at a much lower cost.

Has anyone else on this forum tried them?
