I have just trashed some tail blades they were the originals and had A and B printed on them near the root.

The new pac of blades are different in that they are all marked B.

Question is.............Can I use two B blades instead of and A and a B...any one else noticed??

I don't think it makes any difference. Mine came with 2 x "B" tail blades.

I haven't noticed any difference between the A blades and the B blades, but I think they might be different weights- I just flew a mix and match tail today and it was a little off. Be sure and balance the tail first if you fly an A with B together.

You might want balance them, even if you have 2 x B's. As mine seem to be slightly different weight too.

I only used tape also, seems to be holding ok so far. But I did only just put it on the other day though. If it's good quality tape, then I can't really see it being a problem.

Cheers, Hayden.
