Hi I am building up a Hurricane 550 kit and while I had to order some bits I ordered some spare blades at the same time. I have just realized that the new blades are 50mm longer than the ones that came with the kit. Can I use these blades on the stock kit or will I have to modify something else to be able to use them. Thanks..

I have flown 475 mm all the way to 550 mm woodies on mine with no problems- stock motor and esc until recently and now using align 75Amp esc w/ stock motor(850 w -not the 1100). Batteries got a little hotter on the 550 woodies but they weigh almost the same as the rcp 500mm CF blades that alot of people use on them. My favorite is short boom with 500mm's.

I meant to do that!!!

Speaking of booms, dont you have to run the long boom with the 550mm blades? I thought 550 and short boom no good.

no it does not need the long boom- it does clear with the 550's but it doesn't fly that well with that combo in my opinion. Does not track well at all- almost seemd like there is no tail.

I meant to do that!!!
