Yeah, I've broke 3 clipping the fence, they all snapped right beside the bolt hole, I don't think flying in my driveway is such a good idea, to many solid objects to hit

I wouldn't rely on CA & thread on sharp blades swinging that quickly!

Just me...

Were those the xtreme fiber blades?

My friend wanted to grab some..

I've never used the extreme fiber blades before, but I will say the super blades have held up to unbelievable crashes for me...I'm mean really bad crashes, even into the side of a tractor trailer at full power FFF Don't ask...

They sound pretty fragile, are they?

Yeah, my friend is currently flying 8degree woodies, and tried out my SuperBlades, and says he just doesn't like them, says that there's not enough forward force... or whatever.

Anyone know the degree of pitch on the SuperBlades? or Xtremes?

I wouldn't call the Xtreme blades fragile, quite the opposite...and they are 1/2 price of Superblades

There are 2 types of Superblades, one for hovering (EZ?) and one for hovering/forward flight (XP?)

Oh jeez, $7 bucks? May have to pick myself up a pair just as a backup.

I got the XP... has enough pitch for me, I think he just needs a CP.
