You pay for what you get......
Well, for the last 2 days, I have been battleing my brand new 450SE with a bunch of problems. Finally got everything tweaked and out flying. I was leaving my woodies on untill I got everything all setup and then was going to throw some good carbons on it. My setup is 450SEv2, Neu 1107/2y/ 40-6-18, gy401, 9650.

So I am out hovering and testing it. Blades will not go into track. I check and take it out like 2 more times. Each time checking each one of the links with a digital caliper to make sure they are exact (best way not to have to track a heli). I got HelicopterJohns T-REx setup tool, so that takes a lot of the guessing out of it as well.
All weekend, blades wouldnt track and would fultter bad while around 3K HS. I know, you arent supposed to run them this high, but I hear of people doing it.

Moral of the story. Better blades always help. I slapped some V-Blades on this baby and its a rocket. All problems are gone. Blades track beautifully. Had to bump up throttle cure a bit and this baby is a rock.

I'm off to the flying field.

It is a block that you place under the swashplate. This block sets your swash in the center and also levels it in relation to the airframe allowing for a very easy and pretty accurate setup of the swash and linkages. Just slide that baby in and adjust all linkages going to servos, then setup the head making sure everything is level and exact same length linkages. If you have to track your blades after setting up an aircraft then you are not getting a good setup.

I have almost the same setup (I have the heliup SDS head with metal grips)and use the 325 pro woodies turning 3K on the headspeed. Smooth as glass. You must have got a bad set of blades that were not CG'd correctly. I sold off my sab's and ksp's.

I run 3400 on the head, no issues, and yes good CF blades are worth every penny, unless you are just a beginner woodies are useless and I could care less which sponsored pilot uses them, that don't impress me. Cheers ...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I like my woodies, my HS is about 3000 at zero pitch, and they track great. They are also very cheep. I work at a shop so i get them for about $9.00 a set. its kind of hard to beat the price there.
