Will you fly with this blade?
No, because they're Mavrikk.

drop some ca in it, dab epoxy to build it up to original profile, touch up and your done. Must be a soft spot due to core foam being crushed, it's not structural but looks a little messy.

Cracks in fiberglass don't spread without major flex, the twist on a heli blade mostly occurs about halfway to the tip.

A way to test for integrity is to lift the heli up by the blade tips and look if there is any wrinkling movement in the damaged area. Doing this will put maximum stress near the blade clamp. If wrinkling occurs then structural integrity has been comprimized. No wrinkle, it's ok to fly.

good question.

Not a flippin' chance I'd fly that blade. It's real damage and it's at the root. It doesn't get much worse than that. No way.

No way. That's a pretty serious ding and you don't know how much damage there is further in that you can't see.

And Dood, there is nothing wrong with the Mavikk Pro blades. I have been using them for a number of years now on multiple helis with no issues.

Fair enough. What don't you like about them? Just curious.

I prefer them because they have more bite (given the same pitch) than Edge for example. This gives better pop and faster cyclics. The downside is they are easier to bog than Edge.

don't "hate", Dood.

Regardless of the brand, that is real damage and a danger to anyone around not to mention to the machine that is going to fling it.
