I bought these rotor blades from hobbyzone and love them. They are a tad longer and makes it feel so much more stable. Nice thing too is that they are cheaper than the E-Flite carbon fiber blades by $10. Only dissapointment was that they didn't have the red on the ends. they are black on the inside and white on the outside. Don't care, like them anyways. I am going to try and get a pic of me with my heli this weekend. Might even try some video.

If stability is what you like, why not try the plastic or some fiberglass blades? CF is light, weight and a CG far from center is what makes blades stable. You might like the plastic ones even more.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I notice the stability more so while hovering. I am sure as my experience level goes up, I will be looking for blades for different reasons. I don't think the CP has the best characteristics for learning, but I believe it helps it out some.

If your looking for more stability you might try moving your flybar weights further out...

Actually for me, the blades makes it just right. They are just enough to where it doesn't float around so much during hovering.
