OK so I did a search and found some unfavorable opinions on the Align 600B blades. If you are using them would you please let us know what your opinions and experiences are?

I'm running a pair of 600B's on my 600E. At first I was really dissapointed, but after carefully balancing them, and making tracking adjustments, I've got them spinning smoothly. Note that my CYB600's were perfect without any changes to the original setup (blade or heli).

Fit and finish of the 600B's is also not great. They look streaked, and have small blemishes everywhere. On the bottom (where they are black) the way they layed out the CF is uneven and looks crappy... They are also a bit more flexible than I had hoped, but, at the end of the day, I got them balanced and tracked.

The one good thing about them, their lighter weight, is a real kick in the pants to fly though! However if I could get a pair of light "SB" CYB600's I'd not buy the 600B's.

As a side note, my CYB's are AWESOME. I have two pairs and fit and finish is perfect, balance is perfect...they are...perfect, right out of the box.

Stay away from Align blades of any kind. They are mix and match. If anybody disagrees give me your address I'll send you some.

On edit... the Trex 450 325 woodies are awesome

I'd have to agree with you Mike. I don't plan to buy any more Align Blades...it's just not worth it.

Then you are just 2 with bad experience. I'm on my second pair, first was a set of fibreglass A's. Perfect balance and CG out of the box. Mad a mishap and broke one and have mounted a pair of CF A's, a couple of strips of tape and they are spot on + tracked perfectly right away.

I say great value for money, like the rest of the Align stuff imho

i flew a set of these on my trex nitro today as someone at club had them on his trex n. i took off my trusty sabs and put these on.

all i can say is, and i will be kind to them, they are utter $hit. do NOT buy these things. they will bog like you wouldn't believe compared to sabs and the sabs bog compared to radix. these have to be THE worst blades i have every flown. completely rob power and make cyclics slow.

cheers

I haven't had much luck with these either, can't get em to balance. If you want a set give me your address, I'll shoot these crap blades your way and stick with my CYB's.

OK thanks for the responses. It seems Align has a bit of work to do on their 600 blades.

Wow! I got a set Friday and love them. I wonder if they are like other Align products where they improve over time.

Well, I was finally able to get my align blades balanced at the field today. They are are ok, seemed to bog the head compared to Radix blades.

I broke my Align tail blade that comes with the T600n Pro Kit with hard 3D, I was flying and note some vibration and landed immediately, and there it was… one of the tail blades broke in half…..
Still in there but almost gone, I am happy I landed immediately…..
