Alert : Fake carbon fiber helicopter blade on sale

Watch out when buying CF heli blades, a friend discovered this when he broke his. Bought it at Hong Kong. The outer surface feels and looks like real carbon fiber weave, but its actually a sticker pattern imprinted on the blade surface. Inside is filled with foam like material and strengthened by a piece of CF tube.

Cheap alternative but deadly. Imagine those blades breaking in mid flight and flying towards your eyes ...
