Default SERIOUSE CORONA BLADE DEFECT!!!!

Has their been any reports of a batch of defective main blades on the market for the Corona 120? This is the second time in a month were the Main Blade Roots have Broken under normal usage!!![X(] The first Time I was lucky I just hapened to notice that one side of the blade root was cracked and broken after a normal stressless flight. After installing a new blade, 3 weeks later I'm flying and I noticed that the helicopter main blades are making a louder than normal fluttering noise duing my flight, Remembering that the blades broke the last time, I land and upon inspection I see the Blade Root is Broken again! No Crashes, just normal flight is causing the Blade Roots to crack! Lite Machines should be notified, and I will e-mail them!!
