Change title to "blades with 3g kit?" you may get quicker response just a thought is all. I don't know but they look to be their standard blades.

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

The blades that come with the 3G kits are no different than the blades that are currently and have been being sold by Align.

The 600 3G comes with wood core 600D blades instead of the foam filled 600D blades.

So to answer your question, NO there is no difference in blades.

The only blades right now that differ for flybarless specific helicopters is EDGE blades which offer a noticable difference on flybarless machines when compared to normal "all purpose" blades.

The CG and weight of the EDGE flybarless and flybarred blades differ.

With the traditional flybars you tend to want a more aggressive blade to speed up your cyclic, with flybarless you have so much more cyclic available with a lighter blade where the CG is more towards the inner part of the blade you will have an unstable blade with very quick cyclic.

With flybarless you want a blade that has the CG further out and a little heavier creating a more stable blade. S

Since you can make the helicopter as fast as you want with a FBL system, the more stable the blade the better it will track and fly.

Flyabar..lighter blades with CG in from the center.

Flybarless.. heavier blade, CG towards the tips of the blades will give you a better tracking and flying machine.

Edge is not the only flybarless specific blades. SAB makes them also.

Yes, SAB followed EDGE in an attempt to offer flybarless blades as well.
