4 blade to 2 blade

I landed hard today with my 980 razorback, broke one blade off, can I cut the other one off and make a 2 blade out of it? or will it not be the correct pitch or whatever else could go wrong?

you could. just make sure you balance it. note that it will have reduced power due to the missing blades. if you're ok with that you can have longer flights (due to lower power consumption) if you use the same throttle management as before.

fms said they would offer a 2 blade option for these planes to increase flight time and speed, I asked diamond hobby about this they said the factory decided not to go ahead with the two blade option since guys were reporting 114 mph speeds with the 4 blade.
