O'yeah one blade is all you need now days.

Maybe two if you count a tail blade.

WTF... I didnt even know it was possible to still fly with only one blade creating lift
Just need a counter weight.

You can fly the heli with one pitch link missing too...I know that for a fact.lol....

I literally never use the word literally right.

Think I remember when that happned, or when you posted about it. Did you not know till you landed, or did it feel weird, and desided it was time to land? Man I'd prob crap if I landed and saw one blade link had dropped.

Oh...you can tell when you lose a pitch link.lol...

The most obvious thing is the sound...the loose blade flutters pretty loud.

You lose half your lift as well.

Looks like a good idea - make a counter weight then your blades go twice as far.
I think I'm sticking to 2 blades for now though.

Some of You guys are pretty sad. Not everyone can afford a new set of blades every time they crash. Whats wrong with buying one or selling one if You dont have the money for a new set? It is a hobby and there isnt a right way for a hobby. Some of You guys probably take food off of the table to buy a new set and condemn others that buy one from the classifieds and eat three squares a day along with their children.

The only way to not crash is up

It's ok guys. YSRRIDER just doesn't know any better. I have one for sale out there now, guess that makes me stupid and ignorant. Seriously folks balance your blades or at least throw them on the scale to see that they are truly close enough to fly.

Some might think 50cc crotch rocket style motorcycles are stupid???

I dont want to do STUPID stuff, so if some one could send me 10 sets of new blades it would be great. If not I guess I will have to quit the hobby. Do you also think that running 20% nitro is stupid because it is cheaper?????
