I got one question and i bet it will most likely be a simple answer. What is the difference from normal CY blades and the stick banger blades?

thanks

SB are quicker on cyclic, but at the same time you loose features like they do not auto good.

As stated, SB's are quick and aggressive, they're also very loud. You do lose some auto capabilities and they're also no good for a FBL machine bc they're too light.

Depends on your application and flying style.

I think I am going to try some stick bangers on a FBL machine. I think the FBL system will be able to make them fly pretty stable, and I would like to get rid of some rotational mass.

I was flying "normal" blades in flybarless helicopters for a couple of years before FBL blades were ever released, and what I found was that a flybarless systems coupled to fast servos can make even the most unstable helicopter fly rock solid. It is my prediction that a flybarless unit coupled with some stick-bangers will make for a very stable yet very fast helicopter. The new FBL blades seem to be very, very heavy, and although there are arguments that a helicopter does not really have a "moment of inertia" since the entire rotor disc applies force, I think that having the lightest possible rotor disc might allow for a "crisper" flybarless experience. Of course autos suffer, but nothing is perfect. At least it's worth a try.

Next time I crash, I might pick up some stickbangers and test my theory.

I've tried SB/normal/FBL blades on FBL electric 700's.

The SB had a tendecy to pitch up in FF.

The FBL blades IMHO too heavy and too much tweaking settings to get it moving quick and feeling natural.

The standard radix blades are the best IMHO, it does everything easily yet stable at high speeds.

I had about 5 sets of FBL blades (gave into the craze) but sold them all now, could not get them right for my flight style.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks they are too heavy.

What is the purpose of the FBL blades anyways?

Well they are meant to be heavier and more neutral i think. Something about the FBL is not as stable (say without a stabilisation system) so its meant to make it better.

I hate it, tried radix FBL on a few helis, could never get it locked in.

The standard Radix do everything perfectly!!!

Perhaps if you are solely for speed and smooth flying you would want the FBL but certainly not for me (I do everything on the normal blades)

The Stick banger blades i got are going on a fb trex 600. So i guess they will do ok on the heli i would think.
