Hi,
Is anyone using curtis 95mm tail blade on K3D? or Should I get 92mm one?
Thanks

I used to run 92mm carbons. I found I get better performance with 85mm raptor 30/50 plastic tail rotor blades. Gyro gain with the 92's was just too low for the spartan gyro to pirouette consistently in FFF.

the tail rotor assembly is wider than a raptor by a good amount, so 85mm blades on the K3D is a similar tail rotor disk diameter as a raptor with 92mm tail blades.

I got a fever! The only prescription is MORE 6HV

Guess 92mm is the one for me. Is there any chance that I can use 95mm because I ordered one and have it right now...

I always wondered about what tail blades to use with the Knight. I have a 600E with CF 3D 95mm tail blades. Those cheap tail blades. Paired up with a JR770. What would be the advantages to go to some KBDD 92mm? I do like that they have more visibility.

Really like the way the tail is now. Backwards flight is rock solid and tail barely kicks out in hard collective punch outs.

Would 92mm tail blades use less MAH? My gyro gain is very low.
