Default What blades?

What blades do you use for everyday flying. Not heavy 3D.
I was wanted to paint my T-Rex and was actually wondering on the coloring. It comes with carbon (yellow) and some wood with red.

Thanks.

I found the 325mm wood blades by align to be great simple flying blades. They balance/track easy and are forgiving for normal flying around. They are approx $15/set so they are well priced.

I used the Align 325mm Pro Wood blades for the longest time. I decided to try a set up the "unbranded" Hyperion 325mm blades for $24 from HeliDirect. They're the same weight, but run quieter and can handle light crashes, depending upon what you crash onto! I dumped mine last weekend onto indoor turf. The feathering shaft broke and the blades shot off. There wasn't even a scratch on the blades. HeliDirect also sells a combo set containing the same 325mm blades, but it also includes CF tail blades and CF paddles for $39. Well worth the money.

I am having good results with the Align blue and white "Fiber" blades. These are the plastic ones that are reinforced with a rod of carbon fiber. These track very nice.
