Hey guys finally getting the bugs out of my Trex600N its one hell of a good heli ten times more stable then my Trex450. I have some white carbon blades from Align that just to light to practice auto's with

I was thinking of using some V-BLADES 600,610 or 625mm will any of these be helpful weight wise for learning to do auto's with????
Oh one more question guys my plastic stock piddles the sticker that covers the holes is pealing off so should I just fly it with the holes exposed? Or just get some solid carbon piddles from Align or V-BLADES instead??????????

In my opinion Radix blades are the very best I have used to fly with or auto with. Give them a try, you will like them.

When it comes to autos, the length of the blade isn't as important as the shape of the airfoil, and the weight.

Don't get stuck on "Longer blades will auto better". That's not necessarily true.

Try any of the blades mentioned above. you'll be happy with the performance.

I agree, Radix's are great, actually that's all I fly. They auto really nice with the 600.

fwiw...
All the 600 blades I've tried auto ok, the lighter Aligns having least headspeed retention, TT 600 having the most...TT blades are still among the best for autos,imho.

I would recommend the SAB 600s or the Radix. They seem to auto really well. I liked the Align A blades better than the Align D blades. The D blades don't seem to have as good a hang time as the A blades. Normal V blades are pretty good for autoing but the TST blades are not as good because of the textured surface. I think you'll get the best results from the SAB or Radix blades. Also, going with some slightly longer blades like 610s or 620s may also help.

No, and Yes.

A longer blade will not make for a better auto. Rototech 610's don't auto for piss. You are better off with the 600's, but then the 600's wieght more.

IMO - It has more to do with the wieght and design of the blade than the length. If you want long hang times stay away from the "Stick Banger" blades. They are not designed for autos.

All you need is a good 600mm blade, SAB, Radix,V-blades(non-tst), and some collective management.

Old Guys Rule!
