These great flying FRP composite blades (fiberglass and carbon
fiber) are painted black and laid up in the same steel molds as our full
carbon blades (the white ridge-gap trim is for high visibility). Best of
all, these lovely 602 mm blades are very reasonably priced. Featuring a
swept tip for high efficiency, the thick brass bushing (4mm ID x 12 mm
thick) plus stout tapered-root results in efficient stress
distribution. For added safety, music wire ties the lead weight
to the blade bolt bushing. These great performing 602 mm long x 55 mm
chord blades are a superb choice for prudent pilots who don't buy into
the hype surrounding so many of today's products and just want
predictable flying characteristics in a reasonably priced
- With a beefy root featuring a 4 x 12 mm brass
bushing, the swept tips have good bite.
If you're the kind of pilot who actually flys through manuevers (instead
of merely stick banging), you're going to love these blades because they're
optimized for smooth maneuver entry and exit. We've endeavored to
craft a blade for prudent pilots seeking a reasonable compromise between
budget and performance, especially if you prefer big air maneuvers (with very
predictable pitch response). They hover great because they settle in without
hunting (plus they autorotate superbly).
- Featuring the popular ridge-gap pattern, these blades
exhibit good visibility in flight.
As usual, there's no free lunch which means we didn't fork over outrageous
sums for advertising and sponsored pilots choosing instead to follow
another path. By not paying people to yak about how great they are,
and relying on word of mouth, we can offer an attractive price. This makes
it easy to try them out for yourself. We hope this approach makes it
easier to discover for yourself whether they suit your style and budget
because it also means you'll buy them again (and recommend them to your
- Featuring an eye pleasing finish, these 55 mm wide
chord rotor blades deliver consitency.
A typical example pair weighs about 147 grams each, with a +/- 3
gram manufacturing tolerance, which means a pair on the low side may go 144
grams each, and a pair on the high side may weigh in at 150 grams
each. Moreover, they are very tightly CG matched - within 1 mm of
each other - and balanced very closely - within 1 gram of each other.
These blades are superb for smooth hovering and perform beautifully in
A further consideration is safety and towards that goal, embedded
within the blades is music wire, which secures the lead weight to the blade root
(tying them together) in hopes pieces don't go flying off during a mishap.
