Overview

If you're a hard-core 3D pilot you'll love these blades because they start and stop right now!  Add to it, the wedge tips let you unloaded the engine more quickly, and due to the yellow tips, orientation is easy because they are very visible - especially in low light like late in the evenings or against the treeline. Compared to blades optimized for smooth flight, which help in hiding imperfections in your flying technique, these have the aggressive bite required to make the model start and stop with alacrity and thus, while they'll show everything you're doing wrong they also reward your when you do it right by being very tight, e.g. they do exactly what you want - right now. An added benefit of the wedge tip is how quickly they let you aerodynamically unload the engine while performing demanding maneuvers like a tick-tock or snake, thus promoting quicker energy recovery.  Moreover, at low RPM, when other bladesdemonstrate a clear 'wobble', these simpy hang tough and don't wobble at all.  When I'm feeling aggressive, these are the blades I select because they make my maneuvers look more crisp.  They also hover pretty well and autorotate very decently considering how responsive they are. 

 

 

With a beautiful hand-laid carbon fiber weave, these very, very rigid 610 mm blades are manufactured in steel molds for consistency. The bright yellow tips allow for great visual orientation plus the wedge tips permit for quickly unloading the engine. They are equipped with a thick brass bushing (4mm ID x 12 mm thick), which combined with generously tapered root results in minimal flex.
A generous root for high strenth, and a wedge tip for quickly unloading the engine makes them perfect for 3D maneuvers.

Perfect for horsing around, if your typical flight profile includes a flipping lift off (from nose in) to an inverted backwards climb out followed by a death spiral to an abrupt pull out into piro flips a mere 3 or 4 feet off the ground you're going to love these blades. Why? Because the design specification was super rigidity and a crisp pitch response.  While the wedge tips hover OK, and autorotate fine, the downside is they're less forgiving when just putting around and of course, cost a little bit more than sport blades.

A harmonious mix of lightweight and rigidity combined with a wedge tip makes for great performance

Like hard vs. soft bristles on a toothbrush, or boxers vs. briefs, nobody on this planet can predict which blades you'll like, and certainly not some sponsored pilot shilling for his blade sponsor, so you have to just try them and see how they perform.  The great price is because we've cut out the middelman (and we foprgoe expansive advertising and sponsored pilots), which in turn results in an attractive price. Try them for yourself because if they suit your style you'll save some serious coin (and if you like them, please recommend them to your friends).

 

 

A typical example pair weighs about 136 grams each, with a +/- 2 gram manufacturing tolerance, which means a pair on the low side may go 134 grams each, and a pair on the high side may weigh in at 138 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 great for the pilot performing aggressive maneuvers like piroflips, tumbles, tick-tocks, and snakes.

 

 

We have a few sets of blems on hand (at a nice $20 discount), but you have to call instead of just adding them to your shopping cart.  Naturally, they're just as rigid, balance properly, and of course there's no compromise in how they fly.  They're just slightly blemished because they could have stood a little more clear coating at the factory.  While it's a little tough to photograph to show the blemish, this shows the blem blade - see the almost imperceptible pock markings?  If it bothers you, either don't ask for blems, or shoot another coat of clear yourself (but if you're like us, e.g. more apt to burn fuel than spend time polishing blades), then just bolt them on and fly with the knowledge you're getting the same-same perfomance . . . and have saved some coin!

Slight blemishes show where a little more clear could have been used, which is why they're called 'blems'
