Default some ideas for main blades

getting the shape right looks like it can be done on woodies

but if they hit any body it would be like getting hit with a serrated knife
I'm the one most likely to be hit by them I have flown my micro in to my self more than once

this idea looks dead simple to do

just cut the blade off at an angle wrap a peace a beer can from the cut on the bottom around
the leading edge over the top extending to the original trailing edge the hard part would be
getting the glue right

I would like to get some correctly grooved plastic to try this one
