I think it's safe to say that the Vibe is pretty much his since he was in on the engineering of it. I know the JR engineers were involved too but Curtis is the one that's been tweaking on it making changes.

Hmmmm...

I would bet not a change, but a name change to market some V's.

They look like V-blades with some white carbon on them to me.

Very cool though I would like to see a set up close.

Curtis has spec'd the design but the vendor that he's using has the best carbon layup I've seen. They look very nice.

This project is similar to the fuel he's spec'd and sold via Wildcat.

Right...

This project is similar to the fuel he's spec'd and sold via Wildcat.
And my suspcision is that vendor is Vic Campbell.

I could be wrong, but those look of the quality that Vic consistantly produces.

Either way they look like a nice blade.

If I had to guess, I would say they are made by the same people who make rotortech blades.

Here you go straight off of Ricks Heli web site.


The price will be comparable to SAB and TG, maybe a couple bucks more. They are made in the Funkey plant to Curtis' specifications

fitenfyr you are wrong

Taken off Rick's web site
"Curtis Youngblood has his own line of blades now. They're called Radix. We should have them in July. The price will be comparable to SAB and TG, maybe a couple bucks more. They are made in the Funkey plant to Curtis' specifications. Very nice looking blades and obviously, they perform very well."

When he revealed them, the white tapered triangular stripe design was complimented. Curtis pointed at Anthony (Jager) and said "That his idea".

Well done Anthony! Creates a very cool taper from black to white when in flight.
