I have a stock setup on a Trex 450XL using a Aon 3500 motor. What is the max RPM I can safely run using the stock 315mm wood blades.

2400 RPM is the rated safe head speed for the Align woods, but others have run higher with no problems. Note - there is a difference in design between the various versions of the Align blades - some have no plastic roots, some have cutouts to ligthen the blades, others are solid wood, still others (the pro blades) have an epoxy-like finish.

I run the stock 305 woodies at approximately 2500 rpm with no problems.

Align Pro woodies can run at 3000Rpm with no problems. Many are doing this.

Thank all of you, we had a big heavy snow today so I couldn't go outside to tack my Trex. I will try tommorow. My Trex should be in range but for piece of mind I will tach and adjust as nessary.

Seems like half the nation got dumped on today... we're still getting it here. Stuck in the basement hovering all day, *sigh*
