Has anyone experimented with other brands of 520mm blades? The stock ones are good but is there anything better?

I tried some 550 Mavrikk blades but did not like them. I think that 520’s and keep the weight down is best for 3D so I’m not really interested in longer blades.

the edge 553's are much lighter than the align 550 blades and probably lighter than the mavericks.

In the flybarless forum they say that heavier blades are best for flybarless and lightweight are for use with a flybar. Since I have flybarless I don’t want anything that will mess up the performance. I have my 550 equipped with a SK720 and it flies perfect for me.

I see that the 553’s are very expensive and out of stock. After doing a search it looks like the blade manufacturers have not got around to making T550 blades yet. There will probably be a lot more 520mm choices next spring, 550’s are just too big.

the 553's are great fbl blades. it is what they are made for. will not mess up performance.

they are snappier and crisper in flight than the align 550's.

i think they are about $79 retail.
