Hi all,

Well due to a tail failure on one of my R90SE's, one of the v-blades got slightly damaged near its root. Ive attached a picture, is it ok to cyno back and use ?.

There's no other damage on the blade (or the otherone) but just want to make sure.

Cheers
Tris

Nope. Damaged too close to the root (mounting hole).

Don't use them to fly with, but don't toss them eather. You can always give them to a contest director to use as Trophy's for auto contests at fun fly's. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Trophy's mounted on wood with some airbrushed image or something.
