So everybody claims how good the Radix blades are... Well I broke down and bought a set for ($48) you would like to think that they would be pretty well matched right? I through them on my scale and was very disappointed..They were .4 tenths of a gram different, I know that doesn't sound like much but look at it like this...Its half of a dollar bill..now strap that on to your 325mm blade ...Just for giggles I took some scotch tape just to see how much I would need...12 1/4 inches to make up .4 tenths of a gram. I called CY Enterprises and talked to Brian he said try them if you have a problem send them back and I'll send you a new set, so I flew them and I sent them back , I am waiting for my new set I should have them this week. Great customer service!....I'll weigh the new set and post my results But, I am wondering now if anybody else is having a problem with the weight on the Radix blades?

All the Radix blades I've ever had were spot on. Never bought the little blades before only the 600mm, 690mm and 710mm.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

If they were bigger I wouldn't worry about it but there only 325 so that's why I opted to send them back

I only flew for about half a battery and they seemed like they created a little vibration, I put .4 tenths of a gram of tape on it which was a lot and it was smoother...but in your head its just never right

I never had an issue with the many sets I have owned. I never had 325s though. Glad they got you a new set coming. You should enjoy them

Maybe send your head back for rework.

It's not that big of a deal just to add some tape to make them perfect.

Never had a problem with either 710 and 600 STD and SBs. 95mm T/R baldes are great too.

Did you try them out on a blade balancer? Just because they are different weight doesn't mean they are out of balance to each other.

Typically when I'm balancing a mismatched set of blades I weigh them just to see if they are in the same ball park weight wise. Then just bolt them together and add packing tape to the tip until they sea-saw balance. Same with tail blades. I don't bother checking CG or weight after this. They fly fine for me and it took just a couple of minutes to balance them.

Also, I check EVERY set of blades I get - mains and tail. No matter what the price, they can be out of balance.

Yep out of balance as well..and or $50 I shouldn't have to
just bolt them together and add packing tape to the tip
these are supposed to be the Sh*t not just ok I would have bought Mah or Saab like I have in the past but I wanted to try something new ...and besides everybody agrees that they should be right on or real close...oh wait I feel something for you wait ...wait.... here

I'm not saying they shouldn't be balanced, because they *should*, especially for a $50 set of 325 blades BUT what I am saying is just because they don't weigh the same doesn't mean they _are_ out of balance. But if you checked and they are out, then either add the tape or send them back. You chose to send them back which is good but adding a bit of tape is a valid solution also.
