I just got a set of these . They are suppose to be carbon. They have a carbon look sticker on them with someones name that's supposedly big in the hobby . These blades are actually more flexible than plastic blades.

Twist however seems like a non issue ....

Does anyone have any direct experience with these in the 205 length?

Thanks

I had some when I had a t-rex 250 they were junk IMO and the stock Align CF were heaps better then the torsions.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Thanks ! I can certainly appreciate your input.

Were there any areas at all that the Torsions were good in? Were flight times about the same between the Torsions and the carbon Aligns? Did they make the heli too soft? At low hs was there a pronounced collective differential, negative way too sensitive?

I imagine the collective pop from The Aligns were day and night better.

I am impressed with the Align carbons myself , I'm beginning to think they are a hard act to follow.

Thanks.

for the 250 there are not allot of options, so the 205D aligns are best on it yes, the Torsion were wet noodles at best no kidding. In other sizes they may be ok, but anything larger I run SAB or Edge myself. Blades are a personal preference but I know of no one that actually liked the 205 Torsions to be truthfull.
