Anyone have any close up pics of the machines that were flown at the iHobby Expo? How about setup (battery, motor, ect.) info?

Yep, I've seen the vids. I'm looking for close ups.

This was the closest I got to them. It won't really help you much with the battery and motor info.

But as you can see many of them are fully Blinged....

woooOOOooo....

When you fly a set of them you'll know why pretty darn quickly. They're superb.

Heli88,

More info about the SAB blades? How much $$

hm...

Dr. Ben.... eh?

For some reason most of them look like woodies to me and those grey ones that come with the SE?

'pends on the pic. I think the first one had 2/3 of the models with SAB's on them. The other ones were, like you said, those Align Pro woodies w/ the bonded covering. I'd like to try a set of those myself.

The SAB's are about $50

There are no SAB blades in that picture. From left to right they're Align woodies, Align 315 carbons, Align 325 pro woodie prototype, and V blade prototype.

To answer rcdaddy question:

Here is RunRyder's Event Summary: http://runryder.com/eventsummary.htm
"There are no SAB blades in that picture. From left to right they're Align woodies, Align 315 carbons, Align 325 pro woodie prototype, and V blade prototype." -steph280
I would have to agree with steph280 on that one. Even though I don't know what SAB blades are... they look to me that 3 of the 5 are Align Woodies. Anyone have pics or more info on SAB blades??

I could be wrong... very terribly wrong...

ooohh I googled for SAB and I came across their site: http://www.sab-compositi.it/english/indexnews.htm


Symmetrical carbon blade for helicopter T-Rex
Grip 4,5 mm.
Hole 3 mm.
320mm
38.00 EUR
$44.50 USD


I can see clearly now that it is no coincidence that all 3 of those have that black line across them all exactly at the same spot.


NICE. I think i'll stay away from those for now until my heli will learn to stop huggin trees and eating the floor.


BTW why does it seem like they all chopped off their horiztonal stabalizers?

Yup SAB blades rule !
I had some on my shogun before i got my t-rex.
Loads of extra lift due to the wider surface area.
They make one hell of a difference on punch outs!
