I've read recently several posts about people using 550 blades on a trex 600 to avoid bogging the motor. Anyone doing this?

Thanks,

Roger

Not sure why you would want to.

Probably better to learn how to manage the pitch.

People have tried it in the past. I remember years ago people running the Thunder Tiger 550's on T-Rex 600N's. Now there are more 550 blade options available.

It will definitely have more "pop". Less stability and less auto capability.

I have been flying my T600 with 550 blades for about 2 years. With shorter blades allow you to use more headspeed without bogging and the cyclic rate is definitely higher. Looks like Align came to the same conclusion when they decided to make the T550.

I like Mavrikk 550 G5 wide chord blades or Rotor Tech 560 blades best.

If you are buying new just get a T550 and you don’t need any upgrades.

I'm guessing you are talking about a 600N. In that case, you should change the gearing to up the head speed. It is probably better to get the 550E.

As you well know Rogman88, electric helis are better anyway!

Actually the reason I ask is that my buddy wears his packs out and finds them useless if he can't do sustained tic tocs for more than the first 20 seconds or throw the heli about for 4 minutes. It was mentioned to me in another thread that even with weaker packs the heli may still perform with smaller blades (he uses 6S on his 600). I used to be this way as well but recent focus on collective management and practicing moves that don't require much amps (piro funnels, flips etc...) on my weaker packs still gives me some enjoyment even though I can't hold sustained 4 piont tic tocs with them. My buddy has a different philosophy however, so I'm just thinking of helpful things to mention to him about his setup rather than criticize his flying ability with weaker packs as Mike is doing.
