Do CMT/Go Quick blades come pre balanced? or since they are carbon don't they need balancing? My old SAB's were balanced but not sure if all carbons are.
Thanks

Every set of CMT's I've owned have been balanced, however I'd still check them to make sure.

Blades

Good blades:Just don't let them impact on microscopic bugs you will find at any normal flying field. Still to expensive for static models. The 30 size blades are good for sport flying. The 680's are not vary strong.
Saw a set of 680's woof real bad just after spool up prior to hover.
After closer inspection, one blade was delaminated 3 inches at end
of blade. Hope this helps <>

blades

Well I was under the impression we were talking the Quick fiberglass
blades (Heed warnings above regarding quick fiberglass blades).
However the C.M.T. carbon blades are my favorite!!! My V-blades did
not last long enough for a fair test.(elivator servo failed at 9 degrees ambent temp ) C.M.T. blades, a vary good carbon blade for the money

Great Blades

I have the CMT (not the Go Quick) 550 blades on my Shuttle RG. I love these blades. Never had a problem. -Steve

Don't let anybody fool with you.
Canes are very good blades.
Been useing them for years and no blade related problem.
Not saying that there are not better blades, but they have worked for me.

Good inital balance, good all around flight, and have not delaminated except on impact.

Where I come from, we slap one another.
