I've been into helis a short while and have come to like the scale birds, so I was wanting some info on flat bottom type airfoil blades for scale flying. Has anyone tried them or are they available? Thanks

you can get them, I don't have any first hand experience but from what I understand they are more efficient for hovering but they are less stable.

I was always told that flat bottoms are more stable. I do know that they are more efficient than symmetrical blades. I have flown both and personally, I didn't see a difference.
