If you want to save a few bucks the new Grey 325 Blades from Align are really good. They glued the grey wrap to the wood making them more rigid like carbon, but w/o the cost. I bet you would like them.

I am flying the 315 Align Carbons on my 430L powered HDE with a headspeed of 2500+. If you have a powerful motor like the Lehner you can use just about any blade you desire. My favorite blade is the SAB on my CDE with a Lehner 1020 17 motor.

I believe the Align recommendation for woodies is not over 2400rpm. I have read some are using higher rpm without problem. Personally I would not do it as a blade coming off a Heli makes a pretty good weapon.

yeah

i will be putting on the 3500 aon brushless and maybe an 11 or 13 tooth pinon so i will be around 2700 rpms i believe

i understand the standard woodies only go to 2400 but someone told me the new pro wood blades are rated higher as they come with the se kit and are meant for more 3d

if someone could quote me on the speed of the pro woodies and i might go with the 325 carbons because the 30 sec i had with them, they were good


i just need a lot of head speed because i am going back home to aspen co (at 8000 ft) and those blades i will spin much faster in the thin air

For what its worth...Align informed me yesterday that HS1053 335mm Woodies are no longer produced, and are replaced by the new 325 Pro blades, HS1136 and HS1114.

Those 325 grey Pro wood blades are the bomb! Probably the best blades Align has put out.

i got myself a pair of the 325 pro woods

they are very stiff and a third the price of carbon

a win win in my opinion

and i think you can spin them around 2800

cool

any other info is greatly appriciated

I am looking at a brand new pair of 325 Grey woodies in the package (HS1136T) and it says max speed 2400 RPM.

all align blades say that

even the carbons have that exact same sticker on the package

the carbon does have a wood base in them but the carbon allows them to go up in teh rpm range, much higher than you would ever fly

the reg woods have just a shrink wrap cover and are rated at about 2400 but the pro woods have teh covering wrapped and glued on to make them much stronger than the plastic or standard woods...to my understanding

depending on how often you have a misshap (cost of replaicements ect.........) (woodies are more forgiving)!!!
i fly my aon3500 with carbons with great results on the recomended 11t pinion , i would say if you raise your head speed higher , up into the 3k mark you WILL need carbons.
having said all this , im unsure of what thin air's impact has on heli blade speeds and controlability. you'll prolly get higher speeds with an identical setup as mine maybe???? in which case go carbon
...they also look nicer as you know while its sitting on show on the shelf in your living room !!

If you need to get high , go and fly !

The ones that come with the kit are a set of woodies (white) and a set of yellow plastic (I think they call them fibre - not carbon fibre) I had the yellow ones on for about a minute. They seemed to balance ok but the heli shook like crazy with them on. Seems fine with the woodies. I'm gonna get a few more sets.


My .02 worth.
