Hey all,

My brother just surpprised me with new TT carbons for my Caliber30.(pics in my gallery)When I first flew the caliber with the blades,that baby flew like as if it had a .90 on it! I had to hover at 3/4 stick down and fly fast at half throttle.I cant wait to fly that beast again!

OreO-27

Why is it called common sense if it is so very rare?

Is this possible, carbons = more power?

Which carbons?

THANKS

Carbons are sometimes slipperier (no matter how many times I check the spelling, it never seems right... ), less drag means more available power.

Of course they're stiffer which makes them good for two things. #1 Aerobatics and #2 chopping your heli into little pieces when you screw up #1!!!

Carbon's are more aerodynamic (educated guess) so they cut the air better leaving less disturbance behind the blade, smother trasition, provide better lift, stiffer and more responsive better auto's and I'm sure a number of other things-one being more $$$ but worth every penny.

Carbon blades DO NOT give you more power. However, they are stiffer than wooden blades. This means that they flex less under load, so you're probably getting more pitch than you were with the woodies. (The woodies twist under load, giving you less pitch at the blade tip than you expect).

Also, most modern carbon blades have a more efficient aerfoil than the stock woodies that ship with most entry-level ships. This will provide more lift and less drag.

Try Titanium blades.
I have one made of material NASA used to built space shuttles.
It can 3D while the engine is idle.
For normal hovering, no need to start the engine, just turn the main rotor by hand and it hovers.

Less Energy Lost To Flex & Drag=More Power To The Rotor Head. You could say that is a more efficient use of the power already there. Daniel
