I think i am ready to step up from my woodies to a set of carbon blades. Any suggestions on a good brand that would be suitable for my V1 Raptor? I don't plan on getting into hardcore 3D but I would like to get more proficient at auto rotations so anything that will help with this would be good.

Thanks.

In the US Heliproz.com has Mavrikk blades that are excellent at a good price. I don’t know if they are available in England.

If you go with the Mavrikk blades get the G5 PRO versions. It is well worth the 10 extra bucks because they fly way better then the G4's

blades...
I would recommend you stay with cheap blades for now...

if you are flying a v1 rap 30 then you will not be physically capable of overstressing most of the blades of today

here's a nice set of blades for that machine..

Swe 550's

These are great blades for sport flying and light 3d...

I got a set of TT 550s with my R30 and they sure are pretty. But that is all I can say because they are my first set.

Mavrikk... great blades for the price, and really nice finish. Get white... easier to see.

How can I soar with the Eagles when I work with turkeys??

Stay with the wood blades until you're ready, they're cheaper.
