I want to start practicing autos as I can do them on the sim but never tried on the heli.

I'm sure I will do some blades in the process so thats why I'm looking for the cheapest blades I can find.

I will even buy ur old blades as long as they are flyable.

I have seen blades for the 600 as low as £30ish but the cheapest I've seen for the 700 is £60.

There must be cheapies out there somewhere.

The best blades to practice auto's (i.e. easiest to auto) are the standard Radix.

Unless you really screw up, the only thing you risk is the tail blades when practicing autos.

If you can auto on the Phoenix sim, you're ready. Use standard Radix...you'll be fine.

thunder tiger 710's are heavy and can be found for around
$80-90 new.
they auto really well for just straight autos or an inverted auto with 1 flip or roll. not good for tumbling autos they dont recover well since they are heavy.

only you have the power to make no difference!

MAH G2 710s are available at HeliProz for 70 bucks. These have decent performance, feel a little heavy but they do auto well. You should have good results autoing these.

I would not go with the MAH G2 blades... they are tappered and does not auto well as the G1 / G3.
i used the G1 for lurning auto's - lots of end head speed

just my 2 cents

I have several sets of the G2 and although they are tapered, the do auto well. It may be related to the fact I have been autoing with my Stratus which autos much better than the TRex 700, regardless of blades. However, they are good autoing blades and for 70 bucks, they'll do. I am not the only one at my field that uses them either. My $0.02.

Home Depot. Go to the wood department and do it like it was done 15 years ago. You make your own.

Take a look at the Funkey FG 680mm if you are looking for cheap blades. TBH, the 700N is pretty light and is relatively easy to auto even with light blades, so there is very little chance of killing a pair of blade from autoing a 700N. Only issue is the skids that are a little too narrow.

cheapest blades

The best and cheapest in my opinion are the Curtis Youngblood Radix cosmetically flawed blades. The flaws are very minor almost undetectable. You can get them for $82.00 for 710s or 690s same price. The 105mm tail ones are $18.00 and about $23.00 for the stubs paddles. You can only get them directly from Curtis Youngblood. I hope this helps.

You'll be fine doing autos, you'll notice how easy it is to do them on a 90 size heli with a big smile at the end of the day. Just don't be too rough on your collective bleeding away your head speed to early. The Radix 710's are really great for autos on my 90 heli's

I did not buy the cheap ones for the 7 in the end and I could not wait to try an auto as I was worried about an engine failure but now I can auto pretty well with the align 690's and have not crashed doing one yet.had 2forced autos as well.

But blades are expensive for these 90's so perhaps it should be "any reasonably priced good blades" but I think I already got those
