I have just received a set of 690 V2 3-D V-blades for my Hirobo SuperCobra and and was surprised to find large (2" x 1.5" white patches on both sides of both blades towards the tips which don't appear to be removable.

Does anyone know why these are there? I was hoping for all black blades for scale.

Thanks

David

All of the V-Blades have white squares near the tip. They are white flash tips which help in visibility.

It is hard to see the rotor disk with all black blades, the white tips make the edge of the disk easier to see. If you notice all white blades show up better in the sky

I once choked a smurf to see what color it would trun

The NHP razor pro blade is all black, no color no flash.

These blades are killer and all black. I flew a set of these a long time ago on a Hirobo Cobra and they were awesome smooth.

I agree with Rappy - those RotorTech blades are awsome on a scaler.

Without sounding like a complete pratt,

What you have bought their David is a High Performance Set of 3D Aerobatic Blades which is not designed for a scale application.

What you need is a set of specific scale blades, i used to use TG blades on my scale machines as i found them to fly really nice as they don't have a 3D Symetrical section like a 3D blade so they generate more life.

NHP do some all balde blades but these generally are also 3D blades, they used to do some FAI or non symetrical section blades.

If you want a true to scale look in colour and design then look at Vario blades.

What you need is a standard Aerofoil design blade, or 'Mild S'.

Regards
Christian

V blades are for hard 3d and you fly by the disc, hologram/white tips make it easy to see
