Hi!

http://www.helidirect.com/700mm-pro...lis-p-10335.hdx

Has anyone tried those. Would be great if the performance is as good as the price.

we got one set of 700's and one set of 430's. I haven't flown either, but friend will be trying the 700's when he get's his trex700 back together after an unfortuneate incident. We'll use them as setup blades to debug the machine and not risk another set of Radix 710SB's, prior to making sure the gremlins in his electronics are worked out.

So far, what I can tell you is this.

The finish of the blades is decent. Some chipping around the blade grip bolt holes. The front/leading edge is sanded pretty bluntly.

The blades are of a decent stiffness, but not as stiff as Radix blades. Still, if they fly ok, I wouldn't be concerned. I haven't weighed them, but they do feel a bit heavier than the Radix blades. Plus the cord is smaller so they will have a bit less lift IMO.

will they be totally rocking 3d blades. Probably not. I'm hoping they hold up to mild 3d and if they do, then they will fulfill the niche I want for a cheap blade. Allow me to setup new helis, break in motors etc... W/out risking a more expensive set of blades. Anything they do better than that, is gravy IMO.

After I try the 430's I'll report back, but my damm TREX500ESP has been down for repairs for over a month, trying to RMA my swashplate that failed after 8 flights .

I guess I have been conditioned by the high cost of carbon blades. Years ago it was hard to accept but these days I hardly even notice the cost. After seeing the pictures of the failed grip ends of those no name blades they were selling on eBay, I'm not quick to jump into this end of the pool. I hope you will report back on how THESE blades hold up. If they fly well, they could help put pressure on blade pricing. $53 for a set of quality 700's would be great! Your initial comments though suggest Radix et al dont have anything to worry about.

If you are looking for a nice set of 500 sized blades MAH makes a great 425 carbon fiber set.

3d blades...they're actually VERY good...

I have been flying these "3d " blades on a couple of my machines ...

First machine I have been running them on is my Flybarless TRex 500 MONSTER machine...I am running a HUGE 1905H/1.5y motor in the trex 500 and that combined with it being flybarless it makes TONS Of power...Smokes my buddies trex 500 w/scorpion 1400KV....

anyways...I am running about 15 degrees of pitch ....I would have to say that these 3d blades work VERY VERY well ...especially for the price...they 3d every bit as well as the Radix I normally fly. The ONLY thing I noticed is that during HARD CORE collective pumps they do flutter and fart a tiny bit ...bit if I keep the throttle under 90% on hard punch outs the blades are perfectly fine...

I beat the snot out of them for a few flights and they held up perfect...I also Spin 3000RPM's governed...

I've also been running these blades on my Trex 600 Nitro Super Pro (flybarless) as well...and they work Perfecty fine..I have noticed no issues at all with them...

Of course I don't have a lot of flights on them...but I have no problem recommending them to people who intend to use them for 3d or sport flying...I'm not sure I would recommend them for SUPER Hard core Smack down 3d...but they are good nonetheless....

Sorry with Cosflaw Radix at 62 bucks.. I wont use anything else.
and if they are out of stock I'll buy Mav G5 WCs which fly nearly as well as the Radix.

Blades

I normally do NOT run cheapo blades but I wanted to try these since they are SOOOO Cheap and have such a nice finish...

you know...the price of these blades are sooo good that I would have to say they are definitely worth buying...a set of 430's is like $20

And the 600's cost me like 35$...lol

I agree

But I wanted to experiment with them...

I inspected the blades VERY closely also ....and honestly...the quality and finish are every bit as good as the more expensive blades...

I would have no problem running them for Sport flying...but not sure I would run them for smack down stick banging...and that's typically what I like to do...

SO I tend to run radix/gohbees/Swe's on all my machines...
