Hi! Has anyone tried the Rotor Tech blades on an Hirobo Freya or Eagle?
I'm flying 95:1 gear ratios with OS61SXH's on both my machines, so if anyone has any performance data bring it on.

I have them on my Tempest, not exactly what you are looking for but it might help..............

I really, really like them. I have a set of 700mm symmetricals and they are an excellent all round blade.

They track excellent in forward flight, Good cyclic response and excellent autos. Easily as good as the other leading brands T&G + Sab IMHO.

The only thing I dislike about them is the black finish. This is probably down to the crappy weather we have over here as white is much easier to see

Otherwise excellent blades

Thanks for the reply Awesome, I'm trying to decide between a set of the Rotor Tech's or SAB's.
I'm kinda surprised that a lot more "Freya Folks" haven't tried the Rotor Tech's, thought there'd be a few more responses on this.
From what your saying it does sound like the Rotor Tech's are good blades. I've also heard a lot of folk are using the V-Blades on the Freya as well.
I live on a small island in the Bahamas and am the only person flying heli's here. I rely quite a bit on "Runryder" for information and I must say there is quite a wealth of it here.
Hope your weather improves soon!

I've flown them on both Tempests and Raptor 90 SE's and they are definitely nice blades. They auto well, no bad tendencies that I could see. I'm just getting into the 3D stuff so I can't really say what they will do at the hands of a guy that can really load one to the max.

I run Carbon Tech 680mm which are the same as Rotor Tech on a Freya XSpec. They seem fine to me. They weigh 192grams. I use them for FAI flying. I am not experienced enough to tell the difference between blades, plus I have only tried Carbon Tech's on the Freya.

Carbon Tech is the same as Rotor Tech in the US. So I think Century is the one selling Rotor Tech.

If you want Carbon Tech then I bought mine from Rotor in Singapore.

The Rotor Techs from Century were way more than the TT or Mav Carbons.......
