I know this isn't new news, but I just tried a set of these today for the first time (700mm, Raptor 70) and have to say they are truly excellent. More stable in hover w/o any loss of cyclic authority and better in autos than the BBT's, NHP's, and MAH's I've tried. I haven't had a go with the newest V-blades, but I like these better than the old ones, and at least as well as the SAB's. Thanks. steve.

Love the RotorTechs

I've owned just about every blade out there. I love the RotorTechs and think they fly better than anything I could afford; Zigsaws are another that's just as good. The quality of the blades are nice and all most flawless. When you try to auto those blades, man watch how much energy they can gather and then use. They are nice. Only thing bad I could say about RotorTech is that I wish the tips were white, then it would be easier to see them but you can fix that with some trim tape.

I agree, I was flying rotortech 710's on my CS for a while and they met a rather untimely demise. Loved 'em! Well now I have a set of 720's here in front of me waiting to be tested out. I cant wait! Man those 710's were soooo smooth and quiet. Auto'd unbelievably well too.

In God we trust, everyone else we monitor.

anyways, I have some vortex 600s, and they hover very smooth and then they roll quite nicely, I haven't flown the more expensive Rotortec's yet but I would say that these Vortec's are the best $80 blade I have flown...

You guys can also buy Carbontechs (Rotortechs are rebadged Carbontechs) for half the price of Rotortechs too.

I brought some 680 and 720 Carbontechs for the price that I paid for my first pair of 720 Rotortechs.

I got mine from Australia and the price there was AUS$135 (US$99) for Carbontech 720's.

From Century, the same blade, renamed as Rotortech was US$129.

Not quite half the price, but when I brought them the exchange rate wasn't so favourable.

Hi,

check rotor.com.sg for carbontech blades as well... Their prices seem to be even lower.

Regards,

Andi
