Hi guys, is there any reason why the 50 titan has trailing edge blade grips as apposed to the 90se having leading edge blade grips? I hope you understand what I mean. Is there any benefit in flipping over the 50 titan blade grips so they are leading. cheers

The TE grip link is designed to reduce the servo load during hard 3D. It was designed so you could use low-end servos and still have a good 3D trainer.

If you have strong digital servos it really doesn’t matter.

There used to be a problem with the dreaded "woof and poof" on the V1 raptors that had the 5mm feathering shaft. Since TT switched to the 6mm there have been less problems. I personally have seen this happen in the air to the extent that it bent the feathering shaft. After doing the flip the heli seems more stable also. If you do the flip you need to chamfer the middle of the yoke that goes to the mixing arms or else they will bind.

If you skip me I can't play!
