I'm just finishing my new Venture 30. Besides fighting a JR helicopter with a Futaba 9C radio, I'm wondering how to stow the blades when transporting?

I have a blade holder for the tail boom, but the blades don't fold far enough. What is the best way to transport a Venture 30.

Thanks in advance.

you will have to notch the factory plastic blade grip to make the blades fold all the way back.

on page 36 of the Venture book it has a note about it.

to make the blades.. I would suggest making sure the grips are glued on. put some CA on all the seams of the covering, striping tape if you want. trim the blade grips to fold back. then balance.

cwhitacre21 There is 2 ways you can remove them and put them in a safe place to transport it or you can grind the attachment points on the blade root itsself the manual tells ya what to grind on the blades to get them to fold back but be careful not to remove too much plastic because it will weaken it. But in my oppinion with those blades its best and safer in my book to take them off then grind on them hehe. Or you can just simply buy another set of blades and put an end to the folding problem right there Hope this helps (Helinut)


P.S. One other thing you might already know this but make sure you glue the plastic gripping points that are on the blades with 30 min epoxy to renforce them .

Gravity?? what gravity

you just have to file the stop edge a small amount
on one side

There is one other option...

Many people (myself included) have replaced the stock blade grips with Ergo grips. This is done to correct a blade tracking problem that many of the Venture seem to suffer with, but a beneficial side effect is the ability to completely fold the blades for stowage.

Venture 30
Thanks all,

I think I'll check in to Ergo grips. Sounds like it will cure two problems.

I appreciate the responses and let's hope the weather is good this weekend where ever you are.
