he also has his own website!!

I talking about the 280mm ones

Interested to hear peoples opinions, i picked up a pair For $17 inc shipping.

They seem ok a little rough around the edges but easily cured with some fine wet and dry paper and the bolt holes need enlarged slightly.

The blades don't look to bad, but the sellers feedback score doesn't look so good.

Don't come off the throttle untill you see your GOD!

This guy is a total crook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DO NOT BUY FROM HIM!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought a pair of the carbon blades from him for about 17.00. Took 4 weeks to get them. Item location said somewhere in so.cal. but when I finally got them, like I said 4 weeks later, they were from Italy. The blades looked like something my 11 year old son could have made. These things were total garbage. I didn't even bother trying to mount them. I contacted this asshole and told him how disappointed I was and his response was "send them back to me and I will tell the maker so he can make them better". Make them better? This loser should not be making these blades at all!! If some poor sap does mount them hes going to either destroy his heli or be seriously injured. I told him to refund my money to my paypal account and he said no that I needed to send the blades back first! I asked him to refund the cost of shipping, he said no! This asshole with the great feedback score said he doesn't trust me to send the blades back after receiving my money!! ( I have 100% feedback score!) I was just about to call it a loss( my only really bad experience on ebay) and leave him some negative feedback when I looked up his feedback and saw that every person that left him negative feedback got bad feedback from him! Many of these people had their perfect scores ruined by him. And in almost every case his best comeback was "this person is a liar". So now this guy emails me telling me I need to leave him feedback or else! What do I do? Give him bad feedback and get screwed or good feedback and screw the next guy that thinks 17.00 carbons sound like a deal. By the way I being a total dumbass got all excited and paid before looking at his score, my bad!!!! Don't let it happen to you.

You know there's less than $3 of materials in a set of CF shogun blades (I know, I mould my own). Everything else you're paying for is skill, craftsmanship and time. There's not much that can be saved on material costs, so guess where the saving has to come from on cheap blades!

Yeah, I appreciate the smart response( What did you expect for 17 bucks). I am a metal fabricator and I know the difference in quality between my work which I take great pride in and the yahoo down the street who builds trailers. BUT the yahoo is still making a product thats useable. I thought I was getting a deal, that happens sometimes. I never imagined ******** could openly screw people the way he does, and continues to do! So every night I contact the people bidding on his stuff and let them know what this loser is all about!!!

Mine came yesterday. Only three weeks to deliver. One is curved up a little and the other has a little pit in it. Tracking is impossible because of the curve but they look good. Only cost me $11 bucks. The guy doesn't take bad feedback; he fires back negative if if you complain. Offers to replace it if you pay shipping back and forth to italy. ($15) I only paid $4.25 for the blades. Worth every penny in a static display.
