Sorry i couldn't help myself, just kidding......

i'll say this much about blades, unless you want maximum stability don't get spin blades, i thought i'd try i pair and these things "spin" like two lead bars ! weighing in at 37.70g (that's each, not a pair) there a bit on the heavy side to say the least, these are some other 325mm for the sake of comparison....

Spin Blades 37.70 each
SAB Blades 20.70 each
Rail Blades 26.60 each

I'm no expert but I'd say carve them out of a block of ice.

cool a version of the thread for us n00bs....

I'm actually getting the best results with the align F3C's on my two trex's. For some reason they're very supple in the hover and easy to control.

When I fly the 700E on 6S, tho, the Radix FAI's are the way to go...
