I have been flying my R30 since August this year, i am very comfortable with it, have gained good progression in setup and my flying has moved on to flips, tail stands, etc. and forward flight as fast as it will go.
Although it is quite powerfull, Irvine 39/Weston tuned pipe, I would like a bit more power, and a second machine to help me progress;.
I am not interested in looks (bling and all that), just a good solid machine i can chuck about.
So far:
Raptor 50 V2 (Just Purchased)
JR8231 Cyclic 's (Already Own) or i may buy JR8417'S
JR8411 Collective (Not Yet Bought)
JR811 Throttle (Already Own)
JR649 spcm RX (Already Own)
Futaba 611 Combo (Santa has this ready for me)
RX Batt power (not yet decided)
Metal Head Block (just purchased)
TT50 (just purchased)
I am looking for a bit more response, so maybe the 20g white paddles, i have problems with my R30 rotor overspeeding on fast descends. so i'm thinking about fitting CSM Revmax to this one
I run MT Contest 10, In the Irvine, which is quite messy, and thinking about Possibly wildcat 15-20% in the TT, as i want to stick to the same type of fuel from the start, so assuming i'm moving in the right direction,
my first question is, how much benefit will i get from moving to 30% nitro, i.e does it compare to the extra cost.
Secondaly, guidance toward main and tail blades, the next cost effective move up from stock, that are available in the UK.

And anyting else, i have got wrong or forgotten.

As always someone else's opinnion, makes all the difference.

The white paddles will make your heli more responsive, I can recommend them.
As for my 50, I went for JP 600 carbon main blades, stayed with the plastic tail blades for now. The main blades are definitely worth the cost, you can get a much higher headspeed with them, thus make the heli even more responsive. With the metal head, 1800-1900 rpm, easy to adjust with the rev-max (using Futabas GV-1 myself, so I have no clue how the Rev-Max is set up).
Using 15% nitro with 15% aerosynth comp. oil mixture.

Don't know if this helps you in any way, but at least I wrote something

My R50 has a similar setup using the CSM Revlock which I've found easy to setup and very effective in use, plus the reasonable cost which always helps The only negative comments from fellow flyers is that it looks a bit flimsy but in my eyes thats weight saved. I was running Coolpower 10% but I've changed to Wildcat 30% - not because the R50 needed more but my Hawk Pro with Toki 40 definately did. The Raptor was fine on 10% - its ballistic on 30% and the Wildcat 30 isn't much more than the Coolpower. The Wildcat does leave more residue than the Coolpower but its no worse than the MT Contest 10, certainly the residue is the same colour. I've used (and broken ) a few sets of blades, my favourites being the NHP Razor Pro's. My local model shop, Mikes Models has started to import a range of Carbon blades, GCT X-pert & X-treme which I'm using as the cost is more reasonable, £37.95. I've found these to be well made and perfectly balanced (I've had some carbon blades that weren't) with a performance close to the NHP's. The white paddles do me just fine at the moment, no pitching in FF and better cyclic response.

I'me using a TDG head but with the original TT blade holders as I had vibration problems with a head speed of either 1850 or 1950 switched via the TX and the Revlock, the plastic head is a known weak point at higher rpm, probably why you bought the TT headblock

Thanx, that answers my question, i therefore assume everyone is sticking to stock tails.
Thanx again Colin.................

Go with the green paddles and replace the stock dampeners with the harder red dampeners.
This will really help with the responsiveness of the heli.
Stock length tail blades are fine, just replace with a good set of carbons when you get a chance.
Head speed should be in the 1850-1950 range, no need to exceed 2000rpm.

Yes, forgot the red dampers, stock tail is fine. I've not tried the green paddles but they seem to have a reputation for being pitchy in FF. Try the black first, then change to move the way you want to go.
