Tip noted, thanks. The pipe cutter is starting to look like the best solution for this. No need for power, no noise, no dust, no need to wear safety goggles.

Pipe cutter works good, that's what I used but you will have to flair the cut end back out. The pipe cutter will crimp it down as it cuts. I used a wire cutter to flair the end back out which in turn produced tiny metal shavings. I didn't do a good job of cleaning all of these tiny shavings out of the tube and some got lodged in between my swash ball and the swash plate which caused enough resistance to burn up my servo. So make sure you blow Everthing out really good with canned air or an air compressor. Food for thought...

Blew one blade to bits trying to jump from the deck and then tipped.

I've had absolutely no problem with the V200 blades so I guess I have 8 sets of CB blades that are of no use. That was $35 wasted.
Yeah, I did the same thing.. checkout post #32 http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1385262&page=3 I threw four pair away.

Nothing if you have a 180Z!!

On a V200D01, the longer 180Z blades make it fly crazy! The shorter 180Z-Z-091 blades are shorter (same as yellow V200D01 blades) and work just fine.

Also.. your photos show the original and the 180Z-Z-901 (two Z's = shorter) blades. so, your okay. Again, the 180Z-091 (one Z) are longer and make the V200D01 go nuts!

CORRECTED!

I broke one blade from each set so I am forced to mismatch.

Will trade Battery Chargers for an original box!

If anyone would like to own three more battery chargers, I'll trade you for the original V200D01 box, in good condition, that came with the heli. I'll send you the chargers in a box, you send me the the V200D01 box inside the box I mailed to you so it doesn't get damaged in shipping.

I have:
*Two Walkera charger/balancer/AC adapter
*One Dynam charger/balancer/AC adapter

Any takers? PM me!

I guess I got taken. The CB 180Z blades I got are longer and thinner than my V200's. They are half black half white with Walkera logo but on the underside they have a B like they are for a coax. Live and learn. I have been trying to find somewhere where I could but 6 to 10 pair at a discount but only finding single pairs from $4 to $5. Anyone found better?

These are the fake Walkera blades I was referring to a few posts ago - they fit as lower blades for the BOL just fine. I'd been had by this as well.

As far as the price is concerned that's about as good as it gets online and really costs significantly less if its part of a larger order.

I recently bought some props from flying-hobby and placed 5 sets of the 180z blades on to maximise on shipping. I was thinking why not since they only cost USD1.90 per pair. I trust flying-hobby's wouldn't risk their reputation to sell counterfeits, but you never know. A couple of weeks will reveal if these are genuine Walkera parts.
