Funkey fiberglass blades are not much more expensive than woodies and are pretty decent if your just getting into forward flight. They are also a cheap alternative to carbon for learning aerobatics/3D. Once your past this stage, RotorTech carbon blades are also made by Funkey and work very well but are not much, if any, cheaper than MAH or V-blades.

In any case you can get them at Heli-world.

Hope this helps,
Mike

I agree, they are a great middle of the road fiberglass blade. I have owned a few sets, and they fly just fine. And for the price, it makes the inevitable crunch up a LITTLE less heart breaking. Not like seeing a set of $85.00 or even $100.00 blades flying apart. Give em a shot. I bet you will be pleased that you did. Just save the TV tail slides for the V's. Hope this helps.
