I have a v-blade certificate and so I was curious what size of blade I should get Here are the options I was leaning towards:
720mm
710mm
or 690mm

Another thing, what weight and what blade root size would I need? This heli will be used for hard 3D.
Thanks in advance! Billy

Depends
Depends on what motor, gear ratio, and a few other things you want. A good starting point would be 700s at 175gr. For FAI () 205 gram 720s with 8.0 gear...................................

710's under 180 gram, IF you can find them

If its a new extreme 14/5 root
if its a older extreme 14/4 root

lighter is better, I think Marcus, Botos and Eric all fly about 177 to 180.

Marcus had 178 at bham this year.

You can also Drill out the grips to accept 5mm bolts! That's all that MA does! If you fly hard 3D you will bend the 4mm bolts!!!!!

Funny thing. I never heard of the 4mm bolts bending under hard 3d. until now. How hard must one fly to bend the bolts?:confused

hey again Billy, at the bottom of my gallery is a 1-1/2 year old video of my fury with 207 gram 710s doing somewhat "hard" 3d at 1700 rpm, 4mm bolts. stock paddles.

btw that wasnt a good setup for aggresive 3d, I liked the 700s and v-690s at higher rpms way better for being mean.

but after many many flights, the 4mm bolts are OK.

Hey Billy do yourself a favor!
get the full story before you decide. This is gonna be your first 90, why not make it last! If you're comming out of a raptor 60 into a extreme 90. It will be a huge diffrence in power and agility. The facts are lighter blades are a little bit quicker, but you sacrafice some stability and auto longevity. With heavier blades you will have increased stability and longer autos. So its a give and take. I have no problem with 195g 710's. My roll rate and cyclic response is lightning quick , autos forever and is rock solid through any manuver. If you want to base your decision on what other 3d pilots fly. Curtis runs 710mm 196g vblades. Billy base youre decisions on facts, not what someone is telling you someone else is using Chet

Thanks for the replies, crashnomore- thanks for the advice I do see your point and agree with it, I am just trying to get a basic figure that the general MA public uses, I am not sure if my flying skill will be able to really tell a difference in in 20grams give or take on the blades but who knows, i have never dealt with a machine of this size before maybe it is easier to feel differences tho on a bigger machine, time will tell
KC- you are gonna rock our field with your flying man! You are pretty d@mned good!

thanks Billy Z. Jimmy G tells me youre getting pretty handy at the sticks!


Huskey, just curious what blade /blade weight youre using? it might be enough to just be right over the edge on the hard moves, who knows.
