Default Lynx blades? Plastic?

I just saw the Lynx blades are plastic. Are these actually good? Would they be good for 3D? How strong are they compared to carbon fiber?

I haven't flown my plastic blades yet, but would love to hear from others who have.

maybe this will help
Oxy "Sport" Smack (3 min 22 sec)

From my understanding carbon fiber blades are much more responsive due to their stiffness. Many people do use the plastic blades though. I have been using the carbon plastic blades on my oxy 2 as they are cheap to replace, they fly great for me but then again I am still very much a beginner. I think at the shorter length the plastic is not so much of a problem as opposed to longer blades where flex will become much more prevalent.

People who are still crashing fly the plastic blades. The plastic blades are somewhat more forgiving on the airframe in a crash. And a lot cheaper to replace. And they perform quite well for a beginner or intermediate pilot.


CF will always be a better option for performance.
