I didn't noticed that much of a difference from the $4 exi fiberglass blades, vs the $6 carbon fiber blades, vs, $16 align carbon fiber blades.

The fiberglass ones were a bit less 'poppy', and they are quick to break if you hit the ground, but this probably helps from damaging other parts.

Personally, I'm running the Align carbon fiber blades now and like them.

Everyone has their own opinion on the 'best' way to land. I switch back to normal mode (from idle up) before landing, then land, and when its on the ground then I shut down the heli. This way, I never worry about a 'hard' landing from hitting TH too high up.
I pay careful attention the entire time, even when it's on the ground to be sure that it doesn't want to tip etc..

If you going to use the TH route, others here will give the proper instruction to ensure your throttle and th curves match up properly so you don't end up in a bad situation.

i like the align $17 blades. they work for both FB and FBL. I also like the Edge blades but for $40 a pair, im going to stick with the aligns. For landing, i do the same as InFocus, i flip back to normal mode and then land softly on a piece of wood so i dont land uneven in the grass. Once youre on the ground cut the throttle quick so you dont make any cyclic movements and tip the heli. Good luck!!

I bought some thunder power cf blades, love them!! Looks awesome, light weight, and longer then the stock blades! Came perfectly balanced from factory too!! They were 39 bucks so not the cheapest but work very well

Optical illusion in the 2nd pic above. I was thinking, what did you do to your flybar paddle? but that the landing gear..

I'm using the $4 exi fiberglass blades. I think they work great. Maybe when I stop breaking them as often I'll get a better set. The thunder power blades look good
