Having trashed my 1st set of Carbon Blades (MAH's) I am now using the F & G 600mm blades on my Rappy 50.

One day (far in the future) I would like to do mad 3D etc etc. I am looking for opinions on what you consider to be the best 3D blades and why. I know I could buy one of each blade and try it for myself (and the way I crash that might not take too long ) but I am far too lazy to trial all the different makes out there.

So I am looking for recommendations on the best blades out there. I was happy with MAH's and I am happy with the F & G's, however the description for F & G's are light 3D, so I will eventually have to change them, also, maybe theres a better blade out there and I 've just not discovered it.

They are great for 3d and the weight is just enough for autorotations. It looks good in flight too.

In my opinion, this is the best blade for the raptor 50.

The TT's are white. Easy to see what you are doing. i fly better and crash less with them.

TT600s (actually 600s)
your slipping

Another vote for TT600's why -- cause it came with them and i find nothing i dislike about them. (though i would like to try some MAH eventually)

Actually i've been noticing you can get them in lighter and lighter weights now too saw some 13something gram ones a while back.

i love the t.t. black and white 600s too. they are a great all around blade for 3d and autos. but if you really want something aggressive and less auto performance then the new G4 mavrikk carbons are killer blades. i have a blast with them and they are super fast.

I have flown TT's and I think they are a great blades. They do auto extremely well and pretty responsive. I have just recently switched to SAB's. In my opinion they have about the same response as the tt's but I think they auto a whole lot better. I haven't actually measured the SAB's but they are shorter than tt 600's (606). I have flown Sungwoo's, korean blade, Mavericks, TT's, and now SAB's and my vote is on the SAB's. Also the SAB's are very rigid blades as well. Just my two cents hope it helps.

I've flown the TT, SAB, Mavirikk, and VBlades. I think that the VBlades are by far the best out of the ones I have flown. They just do everything really well and they are true bolt on blades. With all of the other ones I have to spend some time balancing them to get them right on. On the down side, they are expensive as compared. So depending on your budget and you flying skill (how many times gavity wins) you will have to decide.

TTs are best.Mavrikk pros are ok,they are alittle smaller in area and it is noticable when switching between brands.

Well I am unable to get TT's in the UK, so having flown the F & G's I have to say that I am not as impresssed with them as i was with MAH's. So I have ordered a set of SAB's and will try them and see how they perform as a few folk I know fly them and recommend them.

I have tried the TT's Mah's, rotortechs and quick's, hands down the rotortechs are the best no questions. 2ond would be the TT's but the rotortechs auto so much better and are much crisper/cleaner in flight, they are a bit stiffer and the cord balance is more forward which makes them smoother but still very responcive. the TT's initially may be a bit touchier, but roll rates seem to be the same. (what I mean is the rotortechs are much smoother with little stick movement) if you only want wild 3d this may not mean much, but the rotortechs seem to fly more like it is on rails but flick the sticks and she rips. finish is much better as well

I use MAH 600's which I am told fly very nicely for 3d, but the reason is thirty four squid a pair

mine are 140 grams, same as the tt's according to my gram scale, but the CG is different, both cord wise and span wise, I checked them when I first got the TT's but now don't remember what the differences are. I kow the leading edge is heavier on the rotortechs, the rotortechs have a steel "rod" imbedded in a carbon spar in the leading edge, they really can take a beating as well, just ask how I know this.... botched a auto and toasted a boom but blades were fine. only one however survived the 2ond crash. I had lots more power with the rotortechs, when I switched to the tt's last month, I had to lean out the motor 3 clicks, and raise my throttle curve 5% and I am still not able to get the "power / climb" I had with the rototechs. I never ran so rich I was running about 175degrees on my head os 50, now 185\190, never bogged now I get very little but some. I would have to say the rotortechs are more efficient somehow?? I am running Os 50 with ksj pipe. the TT's auto nice but the hang time on the rototechs is noticably better, i do like the colors on the TT's, but the finish and quality on the rotortechs is much better,just watch your fingers because they are almost razor sharp
