PostPost subject: Blade recommendation
Reply with quote

After some trial and error on blade purchases I've come to the realization that there are a lot of blade manufacturers that in my opinion are only making very good landfill material.
After doing some internet research, I've heard that Align are great helis but make only fair blades. Revolution blades (who I understand is going away) have been given some great reviews but as stated I hear are going away.
So I come to those who have the experience in this matter and would greatly appreciate some blade recommendations for 450 or actually any class helicopters.

Hi Mark,

Align blades are middle of the road and the new ones are more prone to damage than the older ones. I have heard good reports on Zeal Blades but haven't tried them yet, currently the only blades I have other than Align are some Tarot which are on par with Align and a set of SAB which I have only had a couple of flights with they seem OK. A my level of flying I stay pretty much with Align now days reasonable price, reasonable performance and readily available.

I too just ordered a set of Tarot blades today to try them out. While I am at no means a quality flyer, I'm looking forward to them. Seem to be reasonably priced though at $14 US. I'll let you all know next week how they work out.

I use both of the following blades

These first ones are reflexed and have a knife-edge trailing edge, and there not expensive either:

I've not tried FBL specific blades yet.

I have used many different brands from cheap and nasty to top of the line and have had good results with Rotor Star and RJX.
