Will 600mm blades work on a raptor 30 with a tt39 motor?

Probably not as the boom length is too short. If you stretched the boom to a 50 size then it might, not sure on the power though?

Take Care,

you won't have enough power. 30 sizes engine don't have the power needed to spin those blades you will not have enough climb out power. Why would you want to put 600 blades??

Just crashed and I head it could be done.
It seems to be a little more difficult to find and more expensive for the 550s.
Plus I was considering up-grading to a 50.

I did the same thing a couple years ago and found out the os 39 would not do it . it bogged real bad it flew but not much power at all . I wouldnt do it stay with 550's.

just post looking for 550 blades in the wanted section and you would be surprised the amount of people that have these blades.

someone is selling nice helimax carbons NIB 550's for 35$...and to answer your question.yes you can run 600's (with the longer boom/belt) but you'll prabably have less performance than 550's because it will bog like mad.

I am a slow flyer so the woodies are fine for me although I just bought a set of the 550mm Maverick G5 pro ultra rigid blades for $65. They turn smooth gave me a little quicker spoolup than woodies still auto pretty good although I can only do them from about 20ft so far. They track amazingly well day to day while woodies drift 1/2" depending on temps. And full power pirouetting climbouts dont bog down my OS32 near as bad.

Oh and look dang good on the heli!!!!!

I've got a Raptor 30 with a TT 39 now. Given that the book says that peak power on this engine is at 16000rpm I gave using the 50 gearing a try. The book is incorrect as anything more than +7 bogs the head heavily.

However, with the correct Raptor 30 gears and the right exhaust (currently a Zimmermann Muffler for me), it quite happily will spin up a set of 600mm blades, +8 is the limit on 10% fuel, but you can get +9 on 30% without a problem. You do need care in your cyclic though.

Cheers

Chris

Well I think I'll stick with the 550mm. sounds like even if it will work its not going to do what I want it to. If anyone has some carbon blades let me know.
Thanks
