Can someone tell me what the pros and cons are in differant tail rotor blades and what adjustments as far radio adjustments when changing them.
Also what is a good website to purchase extra parts if I live in the United States in California?

There shouldn't be any radio adjustments with different tail blades other than possibly a slight gain adjustment. The carbon fiber blades do hold the tail a little better during fast backwards flight, but for just hovering they all pretty much fly the same.

I had the stock black tail blades and went to my local shop and all they had was the white ones. I am at 70% i was told to help with the tail waggle that i should drop the gain 5%. What do you think?

http://www.readyheli.com and modefosheli.com are both great places to get trex stuff... the el cheapo plastic blades are ok, but can sometimes cause wagging or bouncing of the tail due to their flexibility... CF tail blades are stiffer, so flexing is minimized.

What do you recomend for main rotor blades as far as cost and
stability for a beginner? What does the size effect? 325,315,335 etc.

Thank you.

I'd just go with the align CF tail blades... super rigid and not too bad on price... the plastic ones are ok for learning, so long as you don't do a lot of pirouettes or snap your tail around a lot...

main blades affect your stability and slightly on your headspeed. the smaller the blades, the less the mass and air resistance, so your headspeed will probably be a bit higher than larger blades.. larger main blades provide more gyroscopic effect and a larger blade disc, so the heli will tend to be more stable in flight... 325s or 335s are probably better blades to learn on than 315s...

I agree just make sure you have the steel hub mod or you will blow your tail grips off at higher head speeds

I once choked a smurf to see what color it would trun

335 main blades are best to learn on... you'll want a headspeed of anywhere between 2200-2400rpm. once you feel you're ready to learn 3d, bump the headspeed up to 2800-3100rpm...
