Pros:
I installed the blades on my Trex450.
I have both Align Wood blades and Align Carbon Fiber blades to compare with.
The DX blades are:
Very cheap !!! (great for practicing and crashing :) )
Real carbon fiber.
Very well balanced (I uploaded some pictures).
Fast shipping.
Good CG (Center of Gravity)
Hole centered and fits the Trex450 grips very good.
Cons:
Many imperfections on the surface.
uneven trailing edge.
Created Tracking problems which i didnt had before when replacing blades.
I suspect that the blades are not symetrical enough due to poor quality assurance and that is the cause to the tracking issue.
Other:
maybe i shouldnt have bought 3 pairs before i tested one.
I will try the Fiber Glass 325 blades.
Bottomline:
no other 325 Carbon Fiber blades for this price, so i guess the traking issue is something that i can live with.
