Let me know what you think.

Please read all the comments below and help yourself by buying a new set of blades. Do not think about reusing it as that will jeoparidize your life and the flying buddies around you; remember those blades are spinning at 2000rpm, and it will act like a shrapnel if it decides to let go.

oh yeah its done. Any crack especially near the root will quickly travel, then during flight seperate from the head. And with only one blade on in the air, Even Curtis drunk on red bull couldnt save it. get new blades.

You can see the foam filling has been compromised too.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

OMG This guy is an elite veteran. Even the greenest of rookies would know the answer to this. What have you been doing for 2,000 posts commenting on pretty pictures? You coud not have been reading. Just goes to show with some people you never know. WTF? I apologise if this is coming off a little harsh but REALLY?
