Was my first reaction too, but never noted Vblades made in the smaller sizes. These appear to be 325mm. Plus, the Vblades reflective decal is normally rectangular with rounded corners. This has a shape to match the tip profile. I say there is no telling what these are. Vblades would have the identification on them. Just my opinion.

Default Vblades did make that size

I never had a pair so I can't say 100 percent.

They look like HobbyKing TIG 325 blades.

A year back I got a good bach and they were about 17.- USD/pcs. But now when I bought the same blades price had dropped to ~10.- USD (I was plesently suprised) but when I received the new blades they were really bad. Problems with shape, balance, blade grip etc.

Check the blades before you fly your heli that they are good ones.

Those look like Stealth blades... with a metal decal stuck on.

These are them, very versatile product with a wide array of uses.

Actually, they flew quite well! They seem to be ripoffs of ThunderPower blades... though the camber is thicker, the LE isn't as smooth and the TE is not as sharp. For $7 a pair, they were worth every penny.
