Howdy there...newbie here...

I am trying to find less expensive CF blades (Horizon $46.00) and also spindle and main shafts. They are out of stock at Horizon. I don't know how to order blades. I know they are 325mm and I measured 3.89mm at the grip end, but I don't see the grip end measurement on any blades.
Where should I look and what should I ask for? I see align 325mm blades for $18 but I don't know if they would fit in the grip ends.
Also, if spindles and main shafts are in stock anywhere I would appreciate knowing. in fact, all help is appreciated!!

The align 3g blades work really well, their a little thinner at the root end but you can just shim them up with a couple of #4 washers. As far as feathering shaft and things like that, I think your pretty well stuck with the blade parts.

Any comparable 325 mm blades will work. As mentioned, you can add "shims", any thin washer to fill in the gap between the blade root and blade grips. Do invest in a blade balancer, so that you can make sure that the blades are equally balanced. Blade balancer's run from $10.00 - $25.00. Some cheaper (and even some expensive) blades can be quite off, and this will give you a very unstable flight.
