Are the carbon hornet blades THAT much better than the stock blades?

First let me say that I absolutely stink at flying my hornet. I know I have it setup correctly because I spool it up and toss it up in the air and it flies by itself great till I grab it. I was getting frustrated with its performance with the training gear on so I took it off. Sure it has more power but it definitely crashes easier. I didn't even crash it bad and one of the carbon blades broke around the bolt. So should I get another set of the carbon blades or just some stock ones? This used hornet only came with the carbons so I don't know about the stock blades.

I'm sort of frustrated because this thing is all over the place. I thought a 20x20 space would be large enough to learn in but I have hit every wall about 10 times. I guess I'm not asking for a lot of help I just needed to vent. Go Hoosiers!

No one that I know of. I have a few sets on back order.

I think there was a rush on them from Piccolo fliers. I took the CF blades off my Hornet and tried them on my Orion powered Piccolo and posted the results... I haven't been able to get another set since!

Yeah, I went ahead and ordered from Dennis. I hope they come in as promised because I heard from three other ms dealers that said ms missed their shipping deadline so they don't know when to expect them. I have one of those "wild ass" canopies. I'll post a pic when I'm finished with it.
