I've got a Hughes 500E scale body on my Trex 250 (love it!) and am considering the next step in scale by going to a 5-blade rotor. I've seen some threads about Trex 450 experience--anyone done this on the 250? If so, is it worth the trouble/agony/expense? Will I have to upgrade all the servos, motor, etc. from stock?

Also, the only vendor I've found with a 250 compatible 5-blade rotor is:

Are there others?...

Yeah, I know it ain't cheap. But I'm still hoping to hear from the "voice of experience"--the lack of reponses so far is it's own message. Don't know that I have the courage (financial & hobby) to be the first to try a 5-bladed T-250.

Anybody already 'been there'?...

Send a PM to Chuck Nowell. I believe he has one on a 250...and I think it's for sale.
