Default TIGHT BLADE

One of my carbon fibre blades on my Trex450seV2 is very tight in the grip which wen the heli is spooled up wobbles cos it cant straighten up. It must be thicker than the other blade which is ok in the grips. Can it be sandpapered down a little to fit

As a matter of interest both mine are fairly tight but I just make sure they are in line before flying and have no probs. I'm no expert on heli's but do NOT take material out of the grips for definate. What happens when you swap blades in the grips?, that will tell you where the problem lies.

as I posted on your other post...it is common to have to sand the blades just a bit because they are tight in the Aluminum grips....

sand till they fit, rebalance and go fly
