Hi Everyone,

Has anyone tried the Rotortech 710SG's on the Turbulence D3? i'm interested in how they perform on the Turbulence vs the Radix710SB's (lighter blade)

The longest I've ried is the MAH G2 700mm blades. I have acquired some SB CY 710mm and have yet to try them on. So far I like how my MAH 700mm perform. As for Rotortech, they're pretty good blades for I have used a pair back when I use to own a Trex 600E. They're also pretty darn good for doing auto since the little weight on them provides good momentum.

For the SB CYs I think they're good if you like flying hard, 3Ds. Lighter blades should provide very good "pop" as well as for "crack" maneuvers, but I doubt if they'll be good for autos. I'll try mines this weekend.

hi 2kwik2c,

I run the Radix710SB's at the moment and they are a great blade(they are light but still auto great), and i've tried rotortech 690's on my Freya Evo when it had the Evo head on it and they were great too, i'm interested in how the Rotortech710 Scott Grays (182Grams) perform on the SSZ-IV head and Turbulence?

I recently installed the radix 710mm and tail 105mm on my D3 and WOW! i REALLY, REALLY love it! it's a huge difference compared to the V-blades 690's i had on, which i still love!

but 710's really changed the way my heli performs! there great!

I’ll ask around at our local club to see if anybody has those sg blades..

Hi Karlo,

That's the combo i'm going to be running and the combo I had on my Freya with SSZ-IV head (I was running the Radix710SB's), If you could ask anyone how the Rotortech710 scott Grays go that would be great they are slightly heavier blade but i'm interested in how they go.

720blade
I use Rotor Tech 720mm blade(225g, 14mm root).

No problem.

But it`s too heavy --

I used both on my Vibe 90 SG, I kept with the Rotortech710 Scott Gray Blades. They are much more agressive on pitch, and the center of gravity is nearer to the inside of the rotor disc than the one of the Radix, so they are very agile. FFF is the same with both blades, autoing is a little bit better with the SG Blades. Only bad point for the SG Blades is their higher price...

But I don't know if a Turbulence can handle them

(Just a joke, of course it will)

thanks viberheld, did you compare them against the radix 710 stick bangers? if so, that's interesting!

No, not directly. But the Stick Bangers are much more unstable than the normal ones (especially "swinging" arond the grip bolts), the SG Blades have the same, um, lets say "superior stable" Feeling during FFF or hover like the Standard Radix, but when you make an input, they are very direct on pitch and cyclic, and the Heli "feels" more direct, too.

The SG Blades Aerodynamic Profile is completely different to the Radix one, the "thick" Part is much more on the leading edge, and the "transient" to the "ending edge" is almost concave, not convex like on Radix. They have almost no forerun. Nevertheless, in my opinion the blades stall later than Radix, they seem to be very effective.

On Radix Blades you have always got a little "sloppy" feeling around zero pitch, the SG ones are more linear, so you have got to be a little bit more concentrated, too, because they don't "smoothen" your flying style like the Radix do. (IMO)

I've flown the 690 rotortechs so I know what your talking about. I've just ordered a set of 710SG rotortechs so I'll see how they go against the radix sb's.
