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.
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.
maybe i shouldnt have bought 3 pairs before i tested one.
I will try the Fiber Glass 325 blades.
no other 325 Carbon Fiber blades for this price, so i guess the traking issue is something that i can live with.
