there is only one blade size(but in different colors) available for LMH120 corona. you could run 110/116/117 type blade if you have light weight setup. (they are 10" vs 13" for corona)

So the only blades out there are the stock ones? That seems weird no one made any stiff wood blades or some CF ones......[&o]

due to design of the blade, woodies are hard to make and CF mold cost too much. (I've seen some from europe at one time though)

TMaster,

Not sure I've seen wood blades on a fixed pitch heli......

If you look at the design they are not like CCPM blades. They have a varying cord starting thick at the head and getting very thin at the blade tip. CCPM Blades are basically the same cord size all the way down the blade length.
Nothing wrong with the Corona blades though. They're cheap! And that's great!



FWIW.

Fixed Pitch wood Blades for my Hummingbird FP
7 degrees + pitch; the blade grips sit at 0 degrees 180.

I think it could be possible to make some woodies for the corona; just have to start out with a thicker piece of bass wood to make the connection area of the blade to grip differently. I don't know, but I used to fly plastic curved blades on my hummingbird and the Stiff wood blades are a night and day difference from the flexy plastic ones. The corona blades I'm sure are way better then the plastic ones for the hummingbird though, maybe I'll do some experiments when I get my corona

They are pretty small blades only about 250mm long. I made some of them. You can buy some at www.like90.com But they dont make any for the corona. heh
