Default How Are The Wood Blades with the kit?

How well do the wood blades in the kit fly? Also how about the plastic 290mm blades? What are some other blades that you would recommened?

From what i've heard from others the woodies fly the best, over the plastic ones.

The 315 woodies fly very well. The 325 carbons are a good choice if you have the stretched boom. The plastic blades are junk. the only thing good about them is they are tough.

I like the woodies, a lot. I especially like that they only cost $9.

What I do is to carefully remove the heatshrink covering from about 1 inch of the root area and then soak the root with thin CA (be sure to remove the brass bushing first!). Once the CA is dry, I carefully use a heat gun to tighten up the covering.

The reason for the CA is that there is only a tiny amount of wood keeping the blade from separating from the helicopter. The CA reinforces this area. This procedure may or may not be necessary, but the peace of mind is worth the few minutes of effort.
