Limitations on Woodies...
After rebuilding my heli after a crash it looks like I'm not getting my blades in time for the weekend. I'm stuck with woodies. Obviously headspeed is a limitation, I plan on cranking the HS down to about 1700 but what else am I limited to? I'm not doing hardcore 3d, but am doing loops, rolls, tumbles, stall turns, ect. Should I be ok with woddies or not? Thanks

as long as you have secured the roots with epoxy, and balenced the blades well, you shouldn't have any problems flying sport style with the woodies. You are going to notice that they do not fly as well as carbon blades however. They are much, much more flexible.

I have the same problem. I am almost done my Titan/Kasama build and the Radix blades are on back order. Need to fly woodies for break in and until the new ones show up in two weeks!

I used to fly woodies. Just epoxi then and avoid hard inverted manouvers (had a boom strike once).

IMO the TT-600 woodies auto as well as my Mavrikk G4's and they make a neat whooshing sound. I do fly inverted and loops, rolls and what not. I just don't get too crazy with stick banging (isn't really my style anyway) and don't overspeed the head. They work for me in this context.

I don't think it was THAT long ago wood blades were the norm for most everyone.

I would crank down the blade bolts a bit extra to help prevent boom strikes.

Mike,

Assuming I dont want to drive to pompano and I cant find the TT's before the weekend, what decent blades can I get just to get me through the weekend and to maybe keep for backup blades. I really dont want to spend a whole lot of money because I'll be getting TT's next week at the lateset... But something that will allow for a 1950 HS or so and allow for mild 3D?]

Thanks

I would go for NHP's, SAB's, Radix, Carbon Tech, MAH or any of the good Carbon Blades out there. They will all work for what you want to do.

I'd like to keep flying the TT's, I like how they fly and am used to them. I'm just looking for a cheaper alternative assuming I dont find tt's before the weekend. I think worst case senario, I'll drive to pompano and pick those up... Thanks Mike...-- Gentlemen, we can rebuild it... We have the technology....Better…stronger…faster...--

I love the BRRTTTT WHAP! sound woodies make as they are peeling their skin. Carbons never make cool sounds like that.

a touch of CA will cure that.

Am I the only one that flies mild aerobatics with wood blades? the cost of composite blades would have really slowed down my initital learning curve. I was (and still am) much more willing to break a $20 set of wood blades as compared to a $70 set of CF's or even $50 set of Mav's

You might be. I know most guys in NZ, just after learning FFF, switch to Carbons. The reason - no hassles. Bolt on and fly. No one I know likes the pain of gluing roots and balancing woodies. Takes a bit of time. I practice hard on the SIM and tone it down at the field. Haven't crashed a set of Carbons yet - touch wood.

I got a tt engine $ 80.00 from heliproz and a few cheep crash kits and gy 240 and s3001 servos and wood blades. fm reciever and have glued the frame together with jb weld. A real piece of junk. But i fly it pretty far out when in idle up. Helps my learning curve. SO far no boom strikes and no explosions.Trying to get back in the heli game
