One thing i have found is the ability to use bad blades for comparison ! If you have a nice weight scale, you can record how much mass has been lsot in your crash ! If its less than 1% of original blade from your log you can epoxy the blade and use it again ! Some people will say its not worth it !! Well it is !! carbon fiber epoxy is not as strong as JB weld or any 30min ! The product they use to build the blade is fast acting, and has a very large amount of silicone ! I would use them again with a repair !! Or spend $80 or educate yourself about epoxy !!!

educate yourself about epoxy !!!
This repair is not about what epoxy to use. It is about the carbon structure that has been broken. To repair the blade properly you would have to grind away all the damage and lay up new carbon and get the weave in the right direction to give the blade back its streingth. You would have to do this and get the weight right. Too much work for me, throw the blades away and buy new ones. Just my two cents.

Taking this opportunity, I revise the original post to keep the newbies educated.

Hope this was a joke
I was not going to post anything but MAN.....some people should just stick to RC cars. If the intention was to "educate" new guys I would understand, if not, sure go ahead and use that blade but make sure you are by yourself and dial 911 before you spool up.

Yep it is harsh but you asked.

Why would it be considered a joke? It appears that the op has done this to educate some newbies. I would value this as a learning session if I was trying to make that decision. Job well done to the op if only 1 person understands it or thousands!!

Ducati996, I have no idea why you think this is a joke. Anyway, I think that is about it to close this thread.
