The 325 Pro woodies are pretty good for $13. HobbyTown should have them soon if they don't have them now. Or have Joe order a set. I recommend the red and white ones or the older grey ones because the black ones are totally invisible. If your just puttin around the 335's are nice. I still have a set of 315's but haven't tried them lately but if you have enough head speed they should do good for 3D.

BTW I'm in Denver.

The 325 Pro woodies may be pretty good, but Far from the Best!

I use SAB 320's on mine with the stock ESC,Motor and 13T pinion. I have used the helimax 325mm carbon blades and liked them a lot. Just put "Trim Brite" Prisma tape on em and they'll look like v's until they come out

The pro woodies are very close to the best. I now have the SAB's on my machine and there is not much difference between them and the pro woodies. The vertical performance is the same, the flip and roll rate the same, the only difference I notice is they are a little slicker and you don't lose as much headspeed during hard 3D. But even that is a noticeable yet small diference. I don't think they are worth the price. Money no object the SAB's are great, but bang for the buck the pro woodies have them beat by a mile.

Hyperion Carbon blades...325's
These are the best overall blades in my opinion...I have tried most others and really like these ...also you can't beat the price...they sell them at helidirect for 24$ a set....definitely worth the price...that's about half the cost of SAB's

for the hight altitude helis
Rocketwix I just tried the tapered MAHs and for Colrado I had to use 8 to 10 deg of pitch to just hover. I am running a TRex SE v2 with the stock motor and speed control. In idle up 1 I am turning over 2800 in the head speed and I could not get the tapered MAHs to work. there was just no lift. The blades never loaded. lucky me the place I bought them from is willing to exchange them for me. If you are going to fly up here in Colorado be carful on what blades you are useing on your TRex. I am using the stock blades, and the climb is awsome! I just got a set of woddies to try. Sounds like every one likes the woddies.

Hyperion, next SAB, next MAH, next KOK composites. I guess if you don't like CF then I dunno. I do not use woodies ro the plastic but some people swear by them....Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I found the roll / flip rate with the 325mm pro woodies was shocking.

Very slow to flip over. Any one else have the same problem with the 325mm ?

Sab 320's are great blades, good bite, stable, and track very well. After a number of crashes/smashes I've gone through two set of these, and at $US50/pop, I'm reluctant to buy another pair!

After trying all Align blades, I've found that the best ones for me are the 315mm woodies. They offer as quick cyclic as the Sab's and track almost as well.

I've actually found that the original 315mm woodies (which are no longer available, too bad) work better than the new pro 315mm woodies. I don't know why, but one reason is that I've always found that the pro 315mm woodies are not as well balanced and when I flex each blade they do not feel quite the same. The older ones are better balanced (and a bit lighter) and each blade seems to have the same flex.

Blades selection is a pretty personal thing imop and you need to try out a few with your set-up to see what feels, and works best to you.

Cheers,

You guys should be glad you didn't learn flying helis on an H2.
50 bucks a pop and my first year I went through 12-15 sets along with all the parts! I still prefer the Extreme Composites KoK blades. I did get a set of the fake Hyperions too, very impressive craftsmanship,havent balanced them or used them yet. SABs have too much transition delay for me.
Rymps, how bout the 335s for that thin air?

If I'd spent 50 bucks for every set of blades that I've trashed I'd be in the poorhouse and my Trex would be on Ebay. I'm not ready for 3D yet but I have tried several different Align blades. The $20 molded carbon 325's were very stiff and felt really crisp in response. I think they might be a decent choice. They were the only set of "expensive blades" I've tried and I have another set waiting till I get a little better. The only blades I didn't like are the stock plastic or fiber blades they felt real mushy, but I haven't been able to destroy them despite repeated attempts, so they are still around. If I had to pick a fav it would be the 335 red/white pro woodies. They seem to work best for my setup and flying style. If ya can't decide from all the differing opinions you'll get, try all three sets of the pro woodies 315,325 and 335's and see what works best for yourself. If ya don't like em give or sell em to someone else and you'll still be out less that the price of one set of SAB's. I just ordered another 4 sets from Rchover, should last me a couple of weeks. ;-)
