You guys that are saying that this is OK are nuts, it's simply not worth the risk.

All the stress is near the root of the blade, you've effectively weakened the strongest point.

If that blades breaks off, it could seriously hurt or even kill somebody.

It's a safety hazard to fly those blades, buy new ones.

i have had many a pair like fboss and i fly hard with high headspeeds and have never seen those dings ever expand into a crack. in a wreck where forces are put into play they have never spread either.

I would challenge anyone to post that they have had dings like fboss that have got worse.

fboss dont use epoxy it wont seep in the cracks like Ca will

The main question was about Rudyy's blade ..... there is a big difference between a "ding" and a gouge.

i dont think it matters about jacking the thread its run its course.

Op's blades are jacked and a unsafe gamble on the loosing side. yes they may hold up but is it worth the risk No.

i thought this was resolved no need for self proclaimed forums cops to red light anyone

From what I can see of the pics, I wouldn't fly Rudyy's.Just IMO to much damage in the root area.
But would fly the crap out of Fboss's set.

Gotta love the internet questions where the poster knows going in they are going to get a myrid of different responses. So who to trust ???? Hmmmm.

Personally I wouldn't fly them and I've only had high school physics classes.

Personally I would not fly them around anyone after I had posted on a public forum admitting my blades had a potential lethal/dangerous defect. Liability can be a terrible consequense.

A crashing heli is only dangerous if people are nearby. I try to do all my crashing out in the field.
