How big can I go on my R60? I know the manual sez I can do 680 mm safely, but have heard of people using 700mm and 710 mm...and then therein lies the question of what sized tail blade to use too....just wanna make sure fore I do something stupid

Use the 90 size boom & drive shaft. That way you can use up to a
710mm blade if your engine will pull them, even if your engine won`t pull 710s, It just gives you more main blade, tail blade combinations
to choose from.

690's are the most anything longer & you're looking at boom strike. i flew 6mo with 680 and it flew sweet.

i just converted to R90 w/710 and 100 tail, ys91 & sb16 and love it just a much.

690 and 105mm tails are close but if you pull the boom out (1/8in as should be a general practice to keep from pre-loading the drive shaft) all is well. I have clipped 105mm tails when the boom slid in because I forgot to sinch up the boom clamp. So 690 and 105 on the std boom is about it, after that the tail blade length will need to be rediced.
