Finally took the time and made up a set of night blades out of some Rotortech 710's I had laying around.

I've put 20+ flights on them so far and the only problem has been one loose solder joint and some copper tape that started to lift slightly near the tip. Had to seal the tape down with thin CA to keep the oil/nitro from weakening the adhesive.

The video contains some adult language, friends had already been drinking heavily
