I am pretty much recovered. I just don't walk the same and get a little nervous spotting for people . I did make it IRCHA for the first time ever, just walked slow. I am still flying though.

Wow that looks painful sorry for your accident and hope you get better soon. We all face this possibility every time we fly its not always the best idea to come in close I know the crowd loves it I am sure it will continue to happen but remember safety first when possible.

One of the nastiest cuts I have ever seen... I have been lucky. I once spooled up a 450 in my hand and chopped the throttle. Wooden blade nailed my right hand (Holding the tail). Pain for a week.

I am always a little skittish at fun flies. Never know how good or bad someone is. And if you didn't set up the heli, who knows what could malfunction.

Why in hell notNobody is forcing you to use them now are they? Do you actually think that carbon blades will do less damage?

250 power
New to helis, and had a 250 size on the table, and all weighted down, checking some tracking. shut it down, and like a fool removed the weights, and then stupidly turned off the
Tx. Man that thing came alive and totally beat the snot out of me, with just a couple of cuts on my hand. I literally threw myself on the heli to keep it under control. Lesson learned, believe me.

Besides them being against AMA regs, I would suspect that at some point the Carbon blades would break and quit doing damage.

Are the aluminum ones going to break when they start cruching your Hand? Your forearm? I suggest they'll just keep on slicin' and dicin'!!

AMA Ha!! I live on a ranch 8 miles from the nearest town,with no hobby shops.You do what you have to, to be able to fly.

You suspect wrong!your fingers are alot softer than those carbon blades.Carbon or aluminum,it's a mute point,it's about what these helis are capable of.sometimes it's inattention,carelessness,or just a plain accident.
