Default blade options

I crashed my old 450 3D today and damaged the main blades fairly good. I still had the 325mm stock wood blades, but I see they are long discontinued. Are there any options out there?

The 450X CF blades say they are for flybarless. Is there a difference?

I'm thinking about ordering the Align basic CF 325mm blades: https://www.amainhobbies.com/align-3...hd320f/p292629

That's about the only option I see. Think they'll be OK if I shim the blades?

Just buy any type of 325mm carbon blade out there it doesn't matter any more because the price of blades have gone down so much and there is no need of getting wooden blades.

The problem with the wooden blades:

My pair was completely out of CG and balance.
It took me a long time to fix them so I did not get any head vibrations or have them drive the tail gyro crazy.

As the CG additionally was such way off on the one pair that I had to waste the broader packaging tape to fix it it even did take me much more time balancing them than usual.

!!! I definitely would not go with any Blade wooden blades again as a replacement !!!
One time is enough.

Align 325mm carbon fiber blades were just fine and the CG was not that much off - they only did take a little bit of balancing them with the smaller sticky tape.
However, there are different versions and some of the previous CF blades have been discontinued.

Maybe you find some nice main rotor blades within the store HeliTec - Der Blattschmied: https://derblattschmied.com/
