Which way up ?
I've just bought some semi-symmetrical blades, 600mm.
How do I know which way up they go?

So that the leading edge is pointing the way that your rotor head turns.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

If you were to mount them upside down, the leading edge would be pointing in the wrong direction. Most heli's with the exception of Vario's are a right hand turn on the main rotors. Maybe I'm missing something here, but my answer made sense to me.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

Like you said, some clockwise, others anti-clockwise. Not the same thing.
You may know that there are more of one than the other, but the rest of us aren't as clever.
A beginner might take you at your word, and get it completely wrong.

In that case go with Juan's statement, more curved side goes up.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.
