Would be great if you mention the blade size, and if it's fbl or not.

I saw a picture on Facebook today with some blades that appeared to be curved on the leading edge.

Hmm...a bigger curve? Won't you lose more lift? Considering most of the lift is at the end of the blade?

i think that image is just an image and not a view of a blade.

as for the "angled" tips, ive always felt them to be more responsive and aggressive then the "rounded" tips.

RH has their new SE blades shown, looks like just 693mm size at moment, but the curve is the new paint scheme. What exact changes to blade have been made I got no clue..

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I still dont get why there blades are so narrow.

I think the SE blades should be released soon.

I like Shawn can not figure out why Edge Blades are so narrow chord compared to Radix and etc. Edge blades auto horribly compared to Radix. They don't have near as good as collective pop, but are quicker on cyclic so I guess everything is a trade off. I personally do no tike them at all and I flew them for a while. They do nothing bad and track very well, but I greatly prefer radix although I wish Radix were a tad bit quicker.

Can't have it all I guess...

Norman,

Have you tried the V2 Radix or are your comments based on the V1

SB on a TDR where you make the occasional speed run would not work at all.
