FRP = fiber reinforced plastic (like fiberglass of some sort) and they probably have a carbon rod spar.

they are a bit better than the align fiber blades, you can do basic 3D, but for $10 more, get the white carbonfiber Aligns.

Or only a few dollars more get the HDX black carbon blades, they are pretty good. Put some holographic tape on the tips or paint the 3" or so of the tips a light color to help orientation. Again, just my opinion on that.

I don't know about you but the Vs aren't all up to what their sposed to be. The two sets I've had haven't had any consistancy in the manufacturing. The tips are molded all funked up. The roots are not consistant either,I've had to sand them to fit grips like the old align woodies. Align blades are molded better. Gee you'd think for the hype and price huh?Ignorance is the absence of facts.Stupid is lacking the intellectual capacity to comprehend the fact

I have been through a couple of sets of the radix 325's, and am very happy with the blade, not so happy with the price... I tried a set of the white align325 carbons, and while I also changed paddles and tail blades, the heli was very happy- my original setup that I loved, was radix 325's with gorilla programmable paddles (no weight) no flybar weight, and gorilla tail blades- of note also, was the 13t pinion on a medusa 28-32-3400 cc35 with FP EVO25 3s pack- so @ 3000+ hs, the thing was sweet!!!! very crisp and stable!
now, I am interested in the latest combo that I have tried- same heli, same setup (pinion,motor, etc) but the white align325's and the 450 align carbon paddles- the square ones, and the align "white" tailblades- (they seem fatter in chord than the swept trailing edge black ones that come with the kit) unfortunately, I believe that I suffered some sort of lockout, or electrical malfunction, that ended the flight at only 3 minutes, just dropped out of the sky, no power, no control- but when I got to it, everything worked no problem..... except it was all kind broke! anyhow, that combo felt rock solid, less twitchy, and overall, that 450 felt like a 600! now I'm not saying anything like more power, more cyclic rates/collective punch, I guess you would call it more majesty in the air? just felt bigger, like it almost had more authority.. I don't know exactly how to label it, but I believe the white aligns are worth a try- especially at 15 bucks cheaper a set!
What crash? no, no... I meant to do that...

I prefer the Hyperions 325's My last set was 34.00 from Ready Heli I beleive they have them in stock. Iv'e been using them for about 6 months now and love them. Havent tried V-blades or Radix so dont have any input on them. Hyperions work for me and have no reason to try anything else.

Well I flew my heli today with the align white 3k carbons and after about 3 minutes I landed to check my battery temp I should say that I was flying in 6" weeds and when I went to take off again a weed tangled up the tail rotor and the heli tipped over and 1 of the align carbons cut all the way through the tail boom breaking the pushrod, of course the boom and chewing up the tail belt along with 1 of the align blades. Also broke my aluminum seesaw. But for the 3 minutes I got I was very happy. Now im going to try hyperions.
