Is the longest blade choice for a raptor 30... 580's?

Are you overspeeding with the engine you currently use?
rise the collective pitch curve a little than.

Or maybe you want to autorotate better?
well as long as the tail rotor blades are clear and you prevent any boom strike
I don't see any reason not to go for longer blades, but you might want an advice of someone who already tried it and can report his experience.

Currently running 580 blades with 50 size tail boom on my R30V1 TT36 engine. Flies nicer, autos better, but loss some power. So I ordered a 50 convertion kit, TT50engine, TT600 blades, just waiting to be installed.

On the stock raptor 30 will 580's work?

Thanks!

well someone (808heli) is running is 580's with a 50sized tailboom
and he plans to upgrade gears and motor to 50size too.
as you could read just before that

Having been flying a Raptor30, I never felt that 580's would useless with stock setup (either with TT36 or OS32)

Now, why do you absolutly want to fit 580's on a R30
Are those the only spares you have?

And if nobody answers, and if you still feel doing it,
give it a try, and let us know...
