not really, a lot of people did it with V blades which had a wood core, and even blades like Radix/Rotor techs have a foam core in the trailing edge portion, but solid carbon in the leading edge. the fly bar would thread into the solid carbon portion.

they work great if you want super fast cyclic.

If you want to get creative , cut them about 1.5" to 2" from the root and use it as a keychain

I had cut down some 325 Align carbons for setting pitch on the 450 and noticed one day that they are almost identical to the Trex 700 tail blades. Haven't tried them yet, but think they would work just fine.

Cool... How are the blades mounted to the wall? Just some screws and a little spacer (left over head dampener)?

I was gonna hang mine in the back room, but the misses didn't like the wire shelving idea. This looks pretty clean.
as heli hangers...

some people have cut blades into sections and used them for paddles.

You guys have given me some GREAT info. One question foryou. How do you seal the ends of the blades if you use them for paddles? Smear on some epoxy/micro ballons and sand smooth?Larry Rogers - R/C Helicopter Pilot

the ones i have seen....you dont, lol.

just the other day i saw some paddles for a 450 heli made from 450 carbon blades, the trailing portion of the blade/paddle was hollow. it was left like that, and used like that.

makes for a super light paddle!

"V Paddles" made from V blades, are solid wood/carbon core.
