Tried SAB 690s on my Tempest 3D once and personally I did not like them at all. I think they are only 682mm in length which is a little short.

If I remember rightly Chris WAlton (Fast lad here on RR) always uses 710s on his machines and he is an excellent flyer and was well placed in the 3DM.

I like these (Only available in black though)>>>>>>>>>>>>>

A lot of people use V-Blade 690's on their Tempest with 3D head. I think 710's will be a little long and hit the tail blades. Get them in 14mm root and 5mm hole.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

I fly the Tempest 3D with a set Radix 710's. No problems with hitting the T/R blades (Radix 105's) and they fly GREAT.

States on the box 680 to 710 main blades and up to 308 tail diameter. The 105 blades measure 280 diameter. Chris

The speed that keeps the engine in the torque range. It depends on the engine and the pipe. You can do a search plenty of info and opinions on this topic. Chris
