Hello all

I have a T-Rex 500 Pro EFL Pro that I got about 2 years ago but really didn't fly that much till this year.

Its pretty much stock except for the BeastX, Kontroniks ESC and Outrage tail servo and I have about 40 flights on it now an all in all have been very happy with the helo on all levels.

But was thinking of upgrading the main blades so was looking around for replacements in the 425 size as that is what the 3G's that came with it are, an was kinda surprised that for the most part, for all the name makers at least that I have seen so far, they don't make ones in that size.

Often you see 426, 430 or even something a little bigger.

Matter of fact, the only ones I have found so far making 425 is Align.

So got me thinking maybe most just go with these slightly bigger sizes?

Anyway, thought I would pose the question as to what blades an sizes any other EFL owners have gone with an if any mods were needed?

As well would be interested in hearing per any size if what their results were?

Thanks for any help.

Blade Upgrades for 500 class heli
Ive had a Trex 500 for four years, it has a scale fuse on it now. Have found that I like the Edge 473 FBL main blades. Also running an old Align 600XL motor. Thing has a lot of power, befor I put the scale fuse on it would out climb my 600 and 700 easily. You can run these blades on it with no mod, I did befor I installed the 600 motor and it flew just fine as long as you don't have to much blade pitch. I think I went from 13 to 11 degrees and it didn't bog on hard climb out. With the larger motor went back to 13 degrees and still there with the scale body on it.
