Axe CP

Just flew with these new blades:

http://www.helidirect.com/product_i...roducts_id=4343

What a difference! Esp Compared to the stock symetrical balsawood blades. The heli is MUCH more balanced and it doesn't feel like it's balancing on a beach ball as bad anymore. I even get more flight time as the main blades are spinning at a lower rpm and i'm using the servo's less.

All around i'm very pleased and I recommend them for anyone looking for an upgrade. Of corse they are not meant for 3d flying because they are flat on the bottom, but they are a great set of blades for a beginner.

thanks

they may make it more stable, but they will DESTROY your heli if you crash.

i ran them on an old blade CP and had a small crash. i went over and found my heli destroyed. the plastic blades tore through the boom and messed up the head really bad.

i ended up switching back to woodies. i'd rather pay for new blades then a new heli

I second that on the plastic blades...yes the heli is more stable and flies WAY better BUT....BUT if you are still crashing regularly they will destroy head parts....grips ,links,flybar hoops, (blade CP).everything BUT the blades....its easier to throw on a new pair of woodies than rebuild the head...these helis need "breakpoints"...for me time is more impotant than the cost of blades

the only extra damage I noticed are blade grips and tail booms(BCP),but if you do want woods then go with esky blades,they are the same as e-flight but half the price.

I've gone back to the original wooden blades. The plastics were great, they allowed me to better balance the heli and radio. Now the woodies fly as well as the plastics.
