Has anyone used these blades (92 mm Mr. Heli)on a Raptor 50? If so, how did they do?

Never tried them, but they don't look to bad for a narrow chord blade. The length seems good as 95mm is pushing it if you're using 600mm mains. Try them and let us know what you think. I would be concerned about their balance! I am assuming you are talking about a 50v2 and not a v1.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it!

You assume correctly. I think I am going to try them out.

I'll post a review later.

I am going to try them out as well. They look to be a pretty descent blade for the price.

I flew them last weekend on my raptor. I had to trim down the brass bushings just a little because they were sticking out just a little, but that's easy to do. They seem to be balanced just fine, I didn't notice any vibrations with them. I can't compare them to any other carbon blades, but compared to my cut down R60 plastic tail blades, I had to turn the gyro gain down about 15% and they seemed to hold pretty well with a 401/9254. I only got a couple flights on them and most of that time was spent trying to tame down my homemade 100 mm V paddles so I didn't concentrate on the tail so much. But for now these tail blades are staying on my heli.

I got a fever! The only prescription is MORE 6HV
