V-Blades don't make a 680mm blade. They make a 690mm blade now. If you want to order a custom weight then you have to order it directly from V-Blade web site. It takes about a week to make. I don't have a R60 so I couldn't tell you what root and hole size is? Just measure it off your old R60 blades.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

You usually don't figure the weight for the blades, you just get them whatever weight they give to you. They usually are about 183 grams for the 690mm V-Blades. They all come around the same weight. If you want a specific weight you need to order them directly from V-Blades. You can order them 175gr - 210gr.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

You could call the guys at V-Blades, and talk with them. Vic is really knowledgeable about his product and will be able to give you a good idea on what will fit your model and flying style. He also knows his stuff about blades and can explain just about any phenominon that you can ask about.

They are really good folks.

light = faster cyclic for 3D
heavy = longer autos

to see if 390 will fit, turn the blades until closest to the tail blade tips. measure the gap. only need about 2 mm clearance. if not enough can go to a shorter tail blade. i routinely cut nhp tail blades to different lengths.

keepin' it real

thanks for the info perhaps i will just write down 690mm length. measure my blade root on my current blades and then just leave the weight blank as they will be whatever they come from the factory, any idea on about how long it takes it get a set of blades from a certificate?
