The nylon blades flex quite a bit, which helps the quad fly much more smoothly. The CF props are much more rigid and slightly more aggressive in pitch; the quad can lift more but is a lot more prone to twitching itself into a death spiral.

It also sounds much more terrifying, and the CF blades will definitely hack a finger off.

Well real helicopter blades flex so I can understand. Terrifying sound would be cool. Death spiral not cool. Hacking off a finger definitely not cool at all. The RC airplane guys I used to hang with used either a start stick or electric motor starter to start the engine, but the old RC guys were quite proud of the scars on their start-up fingers. Masochists I tell you.

Can I get a ride on that thing when I'm out there in February?






(Oh, and also, I'll need to borrow Spiff for a few minutes when I go to the bathroom when we get together for beer)
