It was real easy to see if they were lined up on the side of the fuz for landing,but the combo was not happy,i think i may have been distorting the blades or something....this sound is not vibration,but something much more EVIL I dig these blades,people at the field were trippin,pulled out all there cameras to get pics,it was like a U.F.O had landed .....I heard the sound once,did a pass and realised all was OK,so i hit it one more time,then heard it again and landed....after inspection,the blades are in perfect condition,even did a couple static tests and there was no vibs,and the blades held up
