Yes, I started using symetricals a long time ago. With flat bottom blades the wind would affect my heli more. I recently bought 10 sets of symetrical wood blades for $67 plus s&h.

What are you using?

My second set of flat blades. My first set had been repaired using wood sandings and CA over and over for about a month of learning. Pretty tough repair. Better than the wood itself.

Yeah, I got into minis with a Walkera 36. I flew it, crashed it, rebuilt and upgraded it, and flew it again. Then I discovered I was having more fun flying my blade cp than the Walkera 36. I was worried about the Walkera hitting something or someone as it's heavy and the blades carry quite a bit of energy. I finally decided one heli is enough and put the Walkera 36 up for sale. I really can't afford to crash more than one anyway...

I went through a bunch of blades for my blade cp. I never really tried removing the cover and recovering them. The blades I had been using seemed if they scraped anything they would start peeling the covering off.

Vicowner, I understand what you are saying about repairing 2 birds. I fly my blade cp closer to the ground and try new things with it, it is easy to repair. I fly my Trex in large open areas, I am more afraid of crashing it.

I was flying last night and when I came in for a landing and the tail rotor (stock) hit a few blades of grass and flew off, I found all of the parts to the tail rotor except for one of the bearings it also caused the blades to fold in and they were slightly damaged (I will tighten them better in the grips when I get a new set) Im glad I ordered the GWS DD parts because that wouldnt have happened if it was installed, basically that is the only complaint I have about this heli, the tail assembly sucks it should have been direct drive in the first place. I also got to meet other heli pilots, I didnt think there was anyone else that flew helis where I lived but when I arrived at the flying field there were three guys with I think it was 7 or 8 glow powered helis out there all of them said that they started (or tried) the blade cp for their first heli and only one of them said that he could fly it any good, they seemd suprised at how easily I hadled my little tiny heli.

Yeah, I like the impact resistant nature of the DD tail too. Though I've broken th tail support already on a low hover wind ground slam.

I've replaced that by hot gluing a fin made from corrugated plastic sheet I got from the book store. It works well. But the thing with hot glue is that you can't take it to the field. And being corrugated, there is little contact area for CA.

Hey Perseverance8...
Greetings from OKC!!

I have a CP-Pro that's totally stock, and fly it alot. Sounds like you're on the fast-track to getting into this in a big huge way!

Anyone who can take on a Blade CP as their first heli is GOOD. I'm a 30-year plank flyer who's discovering the "other side" of model aviation. Learned on a Raptor 30... great machine too.

Your decision to sim early in the learning process was right on. Hope you're planning your next project by now!

Anyway, just wanted to drop a word in here and say Howdy.

From my research I have found that the himax 2015-4100 will probably provide too much head speed and current draw, from what I have found it would be optimal to go with the himax 2015-3600. Anyone have any thoughts on this.
