    325 pro wood blades

    i got a pair of 325 pro woods to try out, and they wont't fit ,,it is normal to have to shave off some of the plastic to make them fit? my carbons slide right in no problem. I guess you get what you pay for,$13.00 vs $39 carbons

    RE: 325 pro wood blades

    i didnt have to cut any plastic to fit mine in,they were perfect. perhaps your blade grips got sqeezed together a bit from when your carbon blades were on?

    it really isn't a problem. spin them back and forth and the excess plastic gets cut off by the rotor grips.

    RE: 325 pro wood blades

    i like the carbons that I got with my SE. I just figure while I am still learning the woods might be a cheaper bet. I guess the best thing is just not to crash[:@]

    those woodies are great blades and will carry you into 3d

    RE: 325 pro wood blades

    I've flown the C/F's on my V2 and too be honest I really like the 325 woodies. There lighter and when I do "whack" the helicopter the woodies do less damage. At 13 buck a pair that's cheap. For now I'll let the Pro's and people with deep pockets buy the C/F Blades. Mike

    RE: 325 pro wood blades

    Flew my 450 last week with 335 "woodies" and they saved me a ton of money when it made an "unscheduled" landing!!!! They splintered and split, eating up most of the kinetics when it hit a post....OUCH!!!! Lost a leveling arm, both blade grips, and a see-saw arm.....$30 bucks later???.....looks brand new. The main shaft was just fine, but I still replaced it for good measure.....C/F's would have undoubtedly hacked it to pieces. Didn't even get a blade strike on the boom.....can you believe it? I'm fat, dumb, and very happy to fly woodies on a 450. As for 600's or 50 or better machines??....I prefer glass or c/f's....got alot of forces on the blade grip end......wyldbill
