Today I was leaning my Hyper .50 a little just after 2 gallons, brought up in the air then all of sudden BAM!!! Was the plastic covering. I have the carbon blades for the Rappy that I think I will install tonight.

sorry, they tell u not to use the blades for 3d, dont let the head speed reach rpm higher than like 1600, and reinforcing the roots are a must, its very sad, makes u wonder y they even give u the blades

Yes! EVO50 kits don't insult your intelligence, as they don't come with blades.

Hi,

Is it normal for the woodies to loose thier plastic coating? I was running a head speed of 1900 yesterday. Has anybody tried the Maverick brand of woodies? I will throw on the carbons just to see how the heli reacts. I just hate to throw on expensive parts just for a newbie as myself although I have progressed.

Does anybody think that TT would warranty these blades?

The covering leaves the blades at higher head speeds if there's wrinkles in it, check for it & if found shrink over a steaming kettle.

Once you put those carbons on, you willnever want to take them off...
Until you need to pay close to $70 to replace them once or twise due to a dumb mistake.

hey
i mentioned it TT Helis
guess i didn't make a big deal of it to be noticed....
this topic of running woodies has been discussed many times and i've talked about it many times with many experienced pilots on here (some of the best right al??? ) and what ended up coming out of it was 1850 is you glue the roots directly to the blades....
and even 1850 can be pushing it.....if your a newbie (somewhat myself too) then you should have a slower headspeed not only for safety reasons....but when you have a slower headspeed it's easier to hover.....casue you cyclic response is slower


glad you put it out there TT Helis

Thanks

Hi,

I was told MAX Headspeed is 1800 on the TT Woodies. I am new to gas heli's I have been flying Electric's for 2 months before I started with the Rappy. I went ahead and installed the Carbon's seems to fly much better for my taste on the carbon's.

Yeah, great tool! Look into the FRP blades, not carbon, and enjoy the ease of decent blades.
