The cheapest blade I use are the align 550's. 60 dollars for a solid set of rotors. Be very careful when using "cheap" blades, they need to be balanced and if they arent it could cause wonky flight characteristics.

Mavrikk has their sport series of blades which fly pretty good actually, and auto great! I don't have a 550, but have flown them on my 500.

These work very well on an FBL set-up.

Just happened to stumble on this. Heli Direct has fiberglass blades (assuming they still do) for like $18. I have them on my Hurricane 550 and fly well and auto great. Even survived a crash. It's converted to FBL.
