My FB 550e is amazing its all stock with a 650 and quark for the tail, with align 550 blades. Heres the question I went FBL on my 700LE it went from great to FREAKING AMAZING. So I want the same out of the 550e, so will the EDGE FBL 553's be to much for this bird.

GOT FBL?

No, they rock and fit fine with the stock 90mm tail blades, despite claims to the contrary. I have 200+ flights on mine.

I had the mains hit the tail blades with 553s and the stock tails while beating on the 550 3G.... Changed to the 85mm tails and problem solved for me.

I was pushing it too hard but still they did hit

The boom is not long enough to clear 90mm tail blades and 553 main blades. If you bend the blades down you will see that they can hit in flight. There has been several crashes reported due to this problem.

85mm tail blades and 553 mains are good.

I found that I like 520/523 mains and 90mm tail blades best with a high headspeed. It’s more agile that way and gives more flight time than with 553 blades.
