Hi folks

What blades are available for the HD head (5mm bolt)?

Also what modifications to run 4mm bolt hole blades?

Thanks

If it ain't broke then break it.

Sab 640mm takes a 5mm bolt and does not come with inserts for 4mm bolts so i make them out of k&s brass tube 3/16x.014 you can get at your hobby shop or at. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXR825&P=7

OK Bill

You can get Rotor Tech CN266266C (620mm with sleeve) or the CN266466 (640mm) 3D blades for use with 4mm (using the supplied sleeve) or 5 mm blade bolts (without the sleeve). They also come with a selection of spacers so that you can center the 14mm roots properly in the 17mm HD grips, which requires a 1.5mm spacers on the top and the bottom.

Of note, is that if the blades you chose do not come with these 1.5mm spacers, they can be purchased seperately from Century. I just cannot remember the part number off hand.

If you want to use 4mm bolt in the oversized HD blade grips, you can also just cut down one of the 4mm ID x 5mm OD sleeves that come sith some blades, to fit in the bolt holes of the blade grips.

Or you can just use the head I prefer - the LT head.

Thanks for the inut guys.

I have the HD head and want to use a blade that has 4mm bolt (cheaper + better selection).

Apparently the aerotech woodies from Century have a removeable sleeve for 4mm + 5mm bolts.

What you think?

If it ain't broke then break it.

Nobody really calls me that except maybe my wife in jest - it is just a name I registered here on RR, when it was in its' infancy many years ago.

Sort of a joke related to the fact that most heli flyers where younger then I, while most plank flyers were older.

So, whenever I would go to heli events in the mid 90's I seemed to be the "oldfart" (I had been flying helis since 1985), yet when I would go to airplane events, I was one of the younger guys.

So I picked the handle "oldfart" here, as a tribute to the youth in this hobby, which now, many years later, I attribute to helping me always feel as young as I did back then.

After flying these rotor winged wonders for nigh past 25 years now -since I was 34, I have always found it interesting how evey generation of heli flyers, all seem to go through the same learning curves, having to learn the same lessons we did. And how they will be so easily lead along similar wayward paths, by fads, as we were, only to learn the lessons we did and start to think more for themselves and to become more knowledgable contributors to the heli community as a whole.

You are a plethora of information, Phil. As far as age goes, you are only as old as you feel. And in your case, you're a youngn'

My dad has a Radikal with the HD head and he is running the SAB 640s. I bought the Radikal with the LT head and am running Rotortech 620s

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Thank you Ray. After flying Century and so many other helis for so long, one does get to know them rather intimately.

I must admit that I certainly feel a lot younger then I am. I do wish I could learn some of the more demanding 3D maneuvers as fast as the younger guys do. But I have to concede that my hand/eye co-ordination is no longer what it used to be, and my brain farts more often then before, and sometimes my aching bones do remind me of my age.

But as long as I keep learning new maneuvers and skills, and continue to enjoy testing and experimenting with new concepts, I will always feel younger and be happy.
