Oops... maybe I wasn't clear... the CF also broke when flying- not just when I sat on a rotor :(

CF normally has enough flex to not break as long as it has not been nicked. I can see it breaking if it was built very rigid and running into a 90 degree corner. I can not see it breaking in flight . Sounds like a bad "lot" of CF.
