There the white ones with the black strip.
My blade grips are about 4.7mm and these blades I have are about 5mm. I can force them in the blade grips but it bows them out some. I got the blades with my V2 from a great guy here on RR http://www.runryder.com/helicopter/t368888p1/.Are these the wrong blades that came with this heli??????
thanks
Scott

Too bad Align doesn't supply some sand paper with a new set of blades!

Sand paper?

Are you saying I should file down a 35 dollar set of blades to make them fit, or was that a joke TomRex ?

It's well documented here that Align's blades need to
be sanded to fit the SE V1 grips! Especially the pro woodies,
a friend has the XL plastic grips and he too has to sand/file
blades! Don't know about the V2 SE grips...

I'll usually take a dremel and lightly sand the bottom of the blade grips until I get a nice fit.

If you're looking for good blades, HeliDirect sells an awesome set of CF blades for 24 bucks which are supposed to be like the Hyperions. I have been flying these and they're awesome. They auto well, are very light at about 18-19 grams each. They rock!

I been through my fair share of blades on my Shogun and MX450.The MX had to have spacers to make Align blades work. It's odd you have to mod the Align blades to fit a Align heli.
thanks for the replys
