I use the 3D blades from Helidirect when I am testing out a new configuriation on my 550 and they are OK, a bit heavy but it sure beats breaking a set of carbons if something goes wrong.

Another option are the RJX blades from HeliHobby, they won't break the bank, I've never used them but have heard good things about them.

...Thank Goodness for the Pro 3D Fiberglass blades!
Under 20.00 is fine with me and I will deal with the weight...Sure wish that Gaui still had 550 wooden blades...All I have seen are the 500 wood blades for sale.
