What manufacturer and length of tail rotor blades are you running on your Raptor 50?

I noticed on my new Raptor 50 kit they sent 30 size tail rotor blades with upgraded 60 size blade holders.

What are you running, and what type of flying are you doing.

Also, please let me know what gear ratio you are running.

Thanks in advance for your input and advice.

Im using what they sent in the 50 kit, 30 tail blades with 60 hub. Since the diameter of the hub is bigger it gives you a larger "disk" than on a 30 ship. I have done several tail slides, tumbles, sideways flight and other stuff with no holding problems yet. I do not plan on changing them any time soon. Give te stock ones a shot and I think you will find them more than adequate.

As for the gearing, I am using the standard 50 gearing. I think it's 8.5/1??
