Can someone who used fiberglass main blades chime me in on their flight characteristics. I have never used fiberglass blades. I only flew with wooded blades and carbon fiberblades (V-blades, SAB, and TG's). Are they about the same weight as carbon blades, just not as stiff? How are they in an auto? I am not planning to use it for 3d flight, mainly scale like flying (Aerial photo work). Thanks..



Why buy?? when you can borrow and no return

my experience with f/g blades has showed me that thay are somewhere between wood and carbon in both price and preformance. Most of the FG blades I have used are heavier than the same size carbon blades, and auto better at the expense of response.

Stick with those SAB's. They fly great. 56mm chord, too.
