I just ran across these CF main rotor blades from HeliDirect I had for my Blade CP... I've cut them down to 92mm. The blade width is 35mm... Can I use them on my Rappy 50 for tail rotor blades? I know I can get a really good set of 92's for about $30, I'm not being cheap I just had them laying around... Here's a stock photo of the blades, my camera is down so I cant take a pic of the trimmed down blades...

BTW, now that I'm running longer tail blades do I need to adjust anything? The amount of pitch and center maybe?

FROM THE LOOK OF THE PIC I THINK YOU SHOULD ROUND THE LEADING EDGE
CORNER SO IF IT TOUCH THE GROUND IT WILL NOT BIT IN AND BRAKE OFF.

more adjustment

If the tail blades new. They are both wider and stiffer than the stock blades so you increased the efficency of the tail rotor system and have to decrease the gain on the gyro.Test it before you lift off.
