What is a good quality, balanced, CF tail blade for the Raptor 50 that won't break the bank?

What size is standard for Raptor 50?

NHP Carbons - GREAT value high performance wide cord tail blades IMHO.

I would say the align 95mm carbon tail blades are the best for the money. They are much stiffer than the radix tail blades that I have right now. With the align tail blades I could not even flex them at all. With the Radix I could flex them a lil. Im not sure if thats a good thing or not. But both blades fly just the same to me.

Oh yea the align tail blades only cost $15 bucks. Great deal

I would watch the 95mm blades if your still running the stock boom. Some have had both main blades and tail blades hit in flight with the stock short boom. If your not using the TT carbon main blades then I would not even worry about the 95mm. The TT carbons are acually more than 600mm. I think around 607mm. So you have a greater chance of hitting.

I've got 8 different sets of CF tail blades on 8 different machines and my experience is that blades from the Align TRex 600 all the way up to the V Blades work fine. I'm using Rotortech's, Lenco's, Mavrikk's, Align, NHP's, MAH and V's as well as Hyperions on a Trex and all of them work amazingly well.

The least expensive are the Mavrikk's and the Align blades.

For a stock Raptor 50v2 the radix blades.

For a Raptor titan the align's are deffinately the best bang for the buck. But 95 mm is a little long for the stock raptor v2 boom.

92 for stock boom, 95 for titan boom, Ive used a bunch... Funkey/century, SAB's work well also TT's are great for the money, pretty much any newer style carbon blade that has some rigidity with decent curve on the airfoil is going to work well... Currently using Vblade 95's with good results.

I run 95MM TT carbons on both 50's, with stock 50 size tail, and TT600 mains. Not a single problem in a year of thrashing the crap out of them. For the money, Gohbee makes a nice set of 92 and 95mm carbons
