I know it's recommended to go to the other gear and the lipo battery with these blades but is it possible to fly the Blade stock, with only a change of the flat bottom blades for the symetrical ones? Reason is I broke my flat bottom blades and hobby shop is out of replacements. They have plenty of symetrical ones though. I don't really want to spend the cash on a lipo battery right now though, I already have two of the NiMH.

I'm at the point where I can hover rock steady tail in, and am doing pretty good side in. Broke blades in garage trying figure 8s, got a little too close to shelves, and it got away from me.

I flew mine, hover only, that way for many, many flights.

I would still try to do the upgrade motor/gear but if you got the flying hornies, I'd go for it.

Symmetrical's don't have as much lift as the
flat bottom blades so don't expect to do much
more than hover with them.

Thanks. I guess I'll give it a try then and see what happens. I do have the upgrade motor with the different gear on it, but I was assuming it would need more battery power.
