got 2 light coats of poly on the blades. Will balance them later on as I do have a blade balancer. I messed up though on painting the tips. I believe I was supposed to paint before applying the poly. No biggy, they look great.

You know I looked at the ones on mine and they are not exactly a super tight fit. The material though is much less rigid and might disipate any noise better than the stock ones. Sorry if that didn't help. If your tail is buzzing that much in flight it sounds like you have some vibration issues. Check your fan/clutch runout, make sure your main and tailshafts are straight, and blades are balanced. might help some.

beating the air into submission...........cool!

Flew the 4th tank of fuel thru the raptor tonight. Did some figure 8s and the heli flew great. The os37 doesin't have as much power as I was expecting. Started to nean it out and could maybe go more, but it was slow to accelerate straight up. Probably need to mess with the mixture and pitch a little more.
