I have some Flybarless CY Radix 600mm blades, but my heli is a flybarred machine. Is it okay or better to use these FBL blades on my heli even though its Flybarred? thanks chris

Clyclic response will not be as fast as it would be with standard blades, but you will gain stability and the heli will track much nicer. You might experience more bogging due to the weight of the blades also.

oh okay, because im experiencing major bogging in any maneuver with my align 600D pro blades. I used to fly mavrikk wide chords, and those performed a heck of a lot better than these blades. I cant even do sideways tic tocs or continuous rolls. it fades out fairly fast(the rotor rpm)
with the mavrikk blades i had no issues at all with bogging. So i know its the align blades. ANYWAYS, I won a set of those Radix flybarless blades at a fun fly, and some of my friends i fly with say its okay and will actually be better for response wise. But its hard to believe them when the CG on the blade is different and weight is heavier.
I just dont want my heli to be suffering more than it actually is.

You can try a lighter set of paddles and it may help.

User a longer flybar and a lighter set of paddles to compensate for the heavier FBL blades.

I'm currently using a set of FBL Edge 603's on my FB Trex 600n...
I'm new to the bigger heavier 600n class helis. When I asked some peeps here on RR on how to make the 600n more stable, I was surprised a lot of them advised on using FBL Blades with lighter Paddles.

I tried it and it did infact Tamed her down a lot. Since I don't do much 3D, it has work out for me. There maybe some cons on goin this route, though it has helped me get familiar with how the trex 600n behaves. Once I get better on flying her, it would be easier To put faster paddles and the transition should be easier.

I'm using the Edge FBL main Blades with some KBDD Paddles and has worked for... I even tried adding weights on the fly bar.. though, the Edge FBL with KBDD Paddles have work better for me.

Hope this info helps..

Just quit your whining and give it try. If you don't like them then, take them off.

Well see I have the align carbon paddles on it, and upgraded to a Jr vibe 440mm flybar. I will give them a try and see. Thanks everyone for the help. It is greatly appreciated

With you being next door in Surprise let me make you a local offer. When we built the woman's Logo600 we tried Radix FB 600's on it. I waited until ReadyHeli had the Edge FBL 623's in stock and swapped her bird over to them. If the Radix FBL 600's you have aren't to your liking we can meet up and swap blades. I'd prefer to have a spare set of FBL blades for her VBar Logo and you seem to want a regular FB set for yours. Feel free to drop me a PM if you're interested and we'll swap numbers. We're heading out to Gilbert in the morning to fly with the K&C fellas but we can work out the logistics at your convenience if you're interested.

If these blades are brand new I will take them. I will more than happy to swap them with yours. Mine are BRAND NEW still in original box. The box has been opened to inspect the contents as I do with everything I get. But again, if they are new and not used will make deal

As I said, we used them until the 623's were delivered. Aside from them hovering usage Becky put on them they're flawless, without nicks, scratches, dings or scuffs. On top of that she put a nice set of tribal flames on them for the eye-candy appeal. I wouldn't offer you anything less than what I claim man. They've been flown (hovered by my wife) but in no way anything less than when I opened the box on them. Hell, at least they've been tested right. LOL

Personally, if you want this kind versus what you have I'd jump on it. For us your blades would be spares but for you these hotties would be your mains. I'm sure the stickers cover any "usage" a few hovers took out of them.

The blades in question are on her blue/yellow 600 in case you'd like to see what we're talking about.
