Mavrikks

Well if you use them and love them that's great...I'm happy for you...they obviously appeal to someone or else they'd be out of business by now...But ask yourself...How many hardcore 3d pilots fly Mavrikks?

Hmmm....I can't think of any top 3d pilots that are willing to carry Mavrikk sponsorship....

I believe the space for mavrikks is clearly defined as a low cost blade for light aerobatics...

Of course this is all in my opinion...I can afford to use good blades like Vblades and radix so that's what I fly...

Has anyone flown both the G4 sport and G4 pro that can make a comparison? To me , the G4 pro looks like it's the same airfoil with fancy paint.

I have the G4 Pros on Vigor 60. I think the G4 pros are much stiffer, don't know for sure what the other differences might be. I know they auto really well.

I flew the G4 Sport once. I had some tracking issues. I have flown G4 Pros since and other than a couple of grams off balance, they've been very good for the price. I have buddies that fly all season long on a pair of cheap blades like the G4 Pros. As soon as they bolt on the more expensive V's or anything else on that price range, the blades do not last long, for whatever reason, not only dumb-thumbs. I guess that is what keeps me away from the more expensive blades. I've been flying the same TT600s since last summer and the same G4Pros 680s for a little over a year. The minute I bolt on a set of expensive blades I'm toast. (Unless i just jinxed myself by making the above statement )

I had the G4 blades on a R50, they SUCK. Auto's were terrible and they were very noisy in the air. TT blades are great for the money.

I believe many are correct on the common aft CG along the chord of Mav blades. I checked 2 sets of them on my Koll Rotor Pro Balancer and both need adjustments. One set will take more than 3 small metal washers on the leading edge of the blade to get it right. This set is brand new out of the box. Hope Heliproz will replace them.

I then checked a set of TG blades (German) and they balanced right on!

Mavrikk blades/Raptor 90SE

I just built my Raptor 90SE with the metal blade grips and I can't fit my Mavrikk G4 pro 700's in them. The blades are a good 2mm thicker than the blade grip opening. Any suggestions? Do these blades need to be fitted?

Ok. I'm just past inverted hovering and am now on to some backwards and Inverted (forwards and backwards flight).

Thus I'd say my big toe is in 3d but barely. Do you guys think the G4 blades would be a healthy jump up from the stocky century wood blades I'm flying? I'm mostly interested in getting my headspeed up into the powerband of my .37 and MPII pipe. All the other flight characteristic stuff is gonna be icing on the cake (since I don't know any better).

A friend and I are considering buying some of these but just don't wanna make a mistake.

Thanks all.

G4 Pros are pretty good. I've been flying them on my EVO and Freya for quite awhile now, never a problem. I've checked the CG of every set of Mavrikk blades I've ever purchased. All that I've bought, including their fiberglass 550s, the G4 CF blades, and the G4-Proz have always been within a millimeter or less of each other within a pair. As for balance, I've rarely had to add any material at the CG of either set of blades in a pair get get my head balanced using them.

I just bolted on a set of the Mavrikk 305/315 on my Rexy 450SE and it was sweet. I have tried a bunch of other blades and you cannot beat the Mavs for the money. Excellent 3D and FFF Characteristics.
