Carbon fiber blades?
Anyone find any that will work from walkera or any other company? The plastic blades have so much flex. Think with stiff blades this thing will pop better even though this thing already rocks my socks off

At this small scale, I honestly can't believe CF blades are worth it over the stock plastic blades. I balanced mine on an Extreme micro magnetic balancer and they came out dead on for the mains. One tail blade needed a touch of scotch tape to balance out perfectly.

Not worried about balance I'm talking about stiffer blades to have more pop when using collective in 3d. The plastic ones flex a ton reducing the pop effect. Imop of coarse

With the short blades and the 4K or so headspeed this thing runs, rotor disk stiffness isn't an issue. Sure, they're "flexy" on the bench, but not in flight.

I beg to differ. Even carbon blades on my 700 flex they all flex in flight.
