no.

there are some blades out there (Maverik and most ModelSports) that don't interoperate well.

Stick w/ good blades (vs. hit of the week no-name
carbons from China) and you'll never have a
problem.

I used Mav's on my first Evo and I had to really push it to make them flutter. I have TT's on it now and they're great.

The Mavrikk, Mavrikk G4, and the Mavrikk G4 pro's work quite well on the EVO50. No problems for me, though i switched to Thunder Tiger 600's just because they are heavier and auto's easier.

Never go full retard!

Mav pro 600's on mine all summer. Nary a flutter. Runs great.

Quit leaning---go ahead and fall for the EVO, you will be glad you did.

Only time I've run into a flutter problem with the Evo was when I had a broken part on the head and didn't realize it. Once that was fixed, flutter was gone. This Evo head is one of the best out there.......

See saw arm had a crack in it from a previous crash that I never caught. Once I replaced the part, I was able to fly Maverick blades on the head without a hint of flutter.

I just put in an order for one through Zoom's. They have a great combo deal for the kit plus an OS50 Hyper and TT Carbon blades for $570. I have some 9252s and a GY-401 to put in it. Looking forward to flying it! Will make a nice addition to my Raptor 60.

Once you get the EVO set up, you'll probably end up flying it more often than your Raptor. The EVO is a great performer.

Sounds great Dave! Unfortunately I have to strip the servos off my Caliber to get the Hirobo in the air but I think it'll be worth it. As for the Raptor I'm planning on converting it to a 90 so it will have its place but I like the idea of a $30 crash kit for the EVO.
