I am looking for ideas on blades for my new Predator gasser coming this week. I am looking for 710 or 720 blades that are not to light. I love doing autos and not going to to 3D with the gasser. Any ideas.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

I used the Radix 710's. I liked the heavy ones too. I had one set of the radix FAI 205 gram 710's and they were great. I called Ron's Heliproz and they got me a heavy set of Radix 710's at 198grams. It seems they no longer make the FAI's. Too bad, great blades!

We have the FAI in stock at the shop, 2nd set we have had come in over a 3 week period.
It would seem they are still around.

For the love of the hobby

Thanks for the info. I was considering the FAI blades and I think I will try them. I can always bolt on my Radix 710SB I have lol.

I flew RotorTech blades on my Predator when I had it. They were very nice blades and flew (auto'ed) nicely. Unfortunately, you can't get RotorTechs anywhere right now, which is kind of ironic that they're advertised at the top of this gasser forum.

I have been using Radix 710 blades from Youngblood that are "cosmetically flawed" and they are really reasonable (from what I have found) at $88 a set. You have to call them to see if they have any available, but they almost always ship that same day. With the set's I have purchased, you have to really "look" to find the "flaw". Great value on a great Blade.

Thanks for the help. I ended up with a set of radix 710mm FAI blades.
