Yes there are. It depends on what kind of quality you are willing to put up with.

Stealth blades at helidirect are 2 pairs for $26. With quality, it's a hit or miss. Finish quality is fair. Most of the time, they require lots of packing tape for balancing. But my most recent 2 pairs actually didn't require any tape. I was quite surprised. These blades are kind of soft though. For Sport flying and beginners, they are the best choice if you're on a budget.

Pro 3D. These are almost identical to the Stealth blades. They go for $25 at amain hobbies.

Chameleon. I never tried these. But they are only $30. Worth a try.

Mavrikk G5 Pro. These are wide chord blades. Excellent quality. Balance and CG perfect. Very fast and smooth but consume more power. These are $39 at amain hobbies or heliproz.

There are other blades but more expensive like CY Radix $65, Edge $60, SAB 3D $55, Torsion $53, MS Composite $52.

Hobby King sells some blades that look very similar to the amainhobbies blades.

fiberglass are $7.77
"3D" cf blades are $13.00

"TIG" CF blades are $30

They have others also but they're on backorder.

I had 3 crashes on edge blades (dumb fingeres 1 x, esc failure -> bad auto 2x), and finally broke them when tail servo gave up

what goes up, must come down in pieces :)
