Every other year I look for a good set of used FAI's. Some time's a new pair - if I can get on a list or my nose under the tent so to speak.

From my study of the new FBL's look's like the blade science is going back a bit retro and closer to the FAI's.

I'm sure a few are running FBL's on standard head's - even seen a few with actual published weight's - just how smoooth are they ??

I can't think of any detrimental effect's if any.

Comment's ???

I don't really have a good 'lesson' for you​Jack

I am using a pair of edge 693 flybarless blades on one of my machines that I won in an autorotation contest, and on the other I am using a set of SAB 710 blades - both machines flybarless.

I heard from Danny that standard Radix blades work really well flybarless and my SAB's are the next best thing to the Radix ones, they are just about equal in design and performance.

Can I tell you that the flybarless blades are flying better than the flybar blades? Not really. I still have a couple of brand new sets of SAB 710's that I bought from Graves while I was in Florida last December and I would expect to use them with no worries as I own them unless there is some pressing need for flybarless blades which I haven't figured out as of yet.

we tried some i think funko blades and we changed back and forth I think they were heavy for my limited flying hay were more stable the other guys that flew 3 d didn't like them there was a difference but not a lot but thay were cheep wish i could get more I think the differences between good blades and other good blades can only be felt by the best of flyers .Now this only my humble opinion i flew radix curtice youngbloud and others I am no grate flyer the only ones i could tell were the heavy ones

Sincere Thanx Guy's

I'm a ole coger style flyer and actually my biggest weakness is that I think to hard about "everything" that is going on mechanically and
aerodynamically while flying.

It seem's it fall's back to a feel and confidence thing with the gassers' - if neither is their - I do not seem to progress.

Back to the 4 ch - Cricket and Heliboy day's without a gyro !

On top of that I have an over a 35 yr abundance of imprinted plank habit's that rear their ugly head and I fly quite a mixture at any given outing.

On one of the birds I fly a old set of CMT's / Heavy 680 FAI's I got from Franny at least 3 year's ago. It's a almost " lot's of bearing's " stock Ten O Five and it handle's like a Old Buick with low air pressure and a trunk full of concrete. Just love the heavy blades for confidence building. It's comfortable. Right around 1750 to 1850.

The other is a Ten Oh Five / SE carbon conversion / Hanson 231 - " w /Bergen stack and a Full Pro head "Franny" again with a set of MaH Dual taper - Heavey 710's. " Lost one of my wide cord SAB FAI's 680's" - still looking ! .

It's kinda a witch - Run's a very hot head speed and love's it around 1900 and above - Bacon hot ! I tried a set of Scott's 710 tapered tip - " stick banger's - " Two hover's " OFF they came. Was a bit reluctant on the torture applied to the head and swash hardware let alone the 9252's.

Seen a few of the new weights - understand how they are FBL balanced and was thinking they may help temper the thing down a bit.

I run 6 on the cyclic all around, and due to the mechanical geometry I'm kinda limited on softening the feel around center - "expo or not" -- my next step it to get into servo resolution. I'm a bit reluctant on what effect's it may have on the servo life. Center on the witch is instant and tight to say the least.

Al way's looking for the Silver Bullet - Yet to loop or roll either of the gassers . Hence the question on the FBL's

For getting stupid and learning collective management - I abuse a R stinkey LEO 30 and a Very Portly R52 with a golden orb of Ra / a black balled - no compression - Ugly Betty over shimmed you can't kill it motor

Alway's looking for the feel
