Ok I picked up a 550e new ish. It was stolen from the local hobby shop and recovered. Got a good deal on it. Well it was missing the tail blades so I picked up a set of Kbdd 96mm blades. Well I had a main blade to tail blade strike doin piro flips. Or at least attempting them. But anyways what tail blades you guys running. To answer the question that will be asked I was running align 550mm blades.

The stock blades are 90mm. I am using the stock 90mm T/R blades with Edge 553mm main rotor blades with no issues. Some will tell you that you need shorter than stock with the longer mains, but there are very few reports of strikes and my own experience says the stock TR blades are fine.

96mm is clearly too long
