The Mavrikk G4-Pro blades work great on the EVO 50. My EVO and Freya both fly very well with no problems using the G4-Pro blades.

I was running the cheaper Mavericks when my EVO was a thirty and it was a great improvement from the wood, I didn't have any complaints, but also I'm not in full forward flight either, but now on my 50 I have the TT's and don't have any complaints either, but if you are in ff and doing 3d, you might ask someone else for a better opinion

I had TTs on my Freya till a pretty nasty crash this summer. I bought the G4-Pros when I rebuilt as I have had excellent results using them while wringing out my EVO 50.

They both fly well, the TT blades auto better.

I have flown many sets of the Mavrikk and TT blades, of all the Mavrikk not even the G4 Pro's would stay in track under even nominal loading. The TT's are a night and day improvement over the Mavrikks, but if I were getting new blades, I would lean twards Radix, SAB, or V-blades over either of the other two. But for sure take TT way over Mavrikk.

I had a Freya do the infamous Raptor "Woof" on a set of Maverikk G4s. You think it's ugly on a little 30/50 bird... You ought to see it on big bird spinning 700mm blades. Pooed my huggies. Changed to V-Blades and never happened again. Never looked back. Swore off Maverikks for good.

Not to beat on Heliproz... I buy loads of excellent stuff from them. They are one of my favorite heli shops - they rock. I just don't buy blades there anymore.

The thing I noticed about the Maverick blades also was the quality control. Some of them come out of the bag spot on and ready to bolt up. Others you can't add enough weight to and get them to balance.

They are also very aggresive aft weighted blades and will tend to woof on you more than some others.

They wont be available for a few more weeks according to Curtis. They sold their entire batch the first week or so they had them.

The SAB 600 blade is a very very nice blade. for $64 at ricks I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a set.

I tried the CXD, TT, SABS & Rotortech 600 in my Evo. The best were the Rotortech 600. Better autos and response. Excellent finish with straight leading and trailing edges.

I will say the same, You will not belive how many rolls of vynil tape I had to add to one of the blades to get them to balance.

Mine are 680mm in a Raptor 70 with OS70/Hattori Muffler and I dont like the way the heli behave with this set. Is like impossible to get head speed with them.

In my case, I will never buy again a set of this brand.

I have the ones that are white and on the root are grey, check the pic so you know wich Mavevicks blades I have......Maybe other Maverick models are betters but the ones I have sucks big time!

Not sure what it was but I just didn't like the feel of the Mavricks.
I liked my TT blades, but I have a set of SAB's on the way after reading all the good reports. Also can't beat the price at Rick's.

I forget to mention that I had good experience with MS COMPOSIT blades.
