Default Main Blades for raptor 30 v1



I am really new at all of this so sorry for the mudain questions, what would be the best blades to us on my raptor 30 v1? I have the stock wood ones but they seem like they dont preform that well, also I had a small crash and toar some of the plastic off the ends of them. Thank you
Mark

If you're crashing or scuffing blades, stick with wood.

If not then any 550 mm carbon blades like the newer Mavrikk, Edge, etc will be fine.

You can re-finish the blades with spray polyurethane. Just take the pastic off, sand the blades lightly, and apply the plyurethane. It actually brings out the wood grain of the blades and it looks great. I flew wood blades like that for a few years.
