Hello,
I have a Pred gas on order and read that it comes with the Aerotech
wood blades (710 mm). I will use them at first but I also have some nice
MS680's and SAB 680's from my Z230 I sold. Can I use the 680's
on the Pred gasser as they worked fine on the Z230, or do I need to
trade or purchase a longer set?

Thanks

I can not say for sure, but I don't know why it would not work. I know many people flying 680's to 710's on their gassers.

From what I understand, the blades may not be long enough to load up the engine. The gear ratio of the predator is probably not the same as you old heli.

Also the distance between blade grip bolts is probably different, too.

Hmmmmmmm

with the stock gear ratio (5.8) being taller than average, you should be able to keep a load on with 680's. I'm running 700's with 6.28 ratio, and no problems. I would darn sure give them a try !

Blade length

Thanks fellows.

Will try them out anyway.

Case anyone's waiting for their Pred, I got a call that the kit shipped today!

One other item, does the engine come with a spark plug? What
plug is supplied? NGK*****?

Thanks

Twowheel,
Yea, got my tracking info and all, but the tracking so far(after almost 2 days) only says billing info received. Waiting to see WHEN
it shipped! Their policy says to bill when SHIPPED.

Unless I missed a phone call or email.
