What a different the heavy blade make over the lighter one
This argument is getting tasty lately, folk might not even think for a min about it. Now this argument can be true unless you've interact with both as a pilot,
many believe the heavy blade make your heli stable and perform better
during. 3d flight' "now' this argument is the other way round if you're
using a v-bar,

To me as a pilot i was thinking the heavy heli will need the lighter blade as you will need less drag on the head wind to pull the heavy weight trough it twist and turn,

Everyone feel free to voice you opinion on this,

My experience flying NOBAR. The heavier fbl specific blade makes a night and day difference over any regular blade I've flown.
There's no hiding flight characteristics flying stab-free versus a fbl stabilization unit.

what up man
is there bit lag and drag when using the heavy blade to where the heli feel like it under load, i have never weight any of my blade,
but i felt some change in flight when i use certain blade both v-bar or fly-bar
they say the lighter blade on the FBL tended to be a little sluggish,

don't know if it true,

I can't say that I notice anything like you're asking.
I feel that 10 or 20 grams won't make that much of a difference with a hot set-up.
My YS91 certainly can't tell the difference between the lighter or heavier blades. Actually my Hyper50 and Scorpion -6 can't tell the difference either.
I only fly EDGE mains NOBAR style.

Interesting subject i just went fbl and am flying widecords not sure if there considered "HEAVY" but i can tell the difference as it sucks more power from the head but with the 30% power increase from going fbl kinda evens out. Is the a big difference between fbl and fb blades as far as flight characteristics?

thank for your input buddy
well the statement might be true, about the heavy blade; they will give you a better performance over the lighter blade, as i notice when i use the
align blade or edge blade i have to play with the radio curve to get a
little bit of pop. When i use the thunder power or saab blade i have to go liner on the curve' because the heli is too responsive' could be because they're little stiffer,i know they are heavier because they're longer by a few inch.

i" was hoping someone here know about the weight of blade and there
application, in my 7 year of flight i never thinks about it for once
until i hear the argument in the store,

yea cuzz
you said edge blade, folk say they're good but i don't have luck with them. I never use em on my bigger bird' but on my 450 of course;
there spec is 325 but when i measure em with a 325 blade they are a little smaller. More like 315 to me

i like youngblood blade, saab thunder power mavrick v-blade these are good blade but dang expensive,

As long as the CG is not right up on the blade grips (such as with the Radix "Stick Banger" blades) most blades will do well in a flybarless setup.

"Performance" is very much a personal preference.

For example in the case of Radix blades, most of us prefer the standard Radix blades vs the flybarless for 3D, the CG is far enough out to where they track very good and don't bog. The Radix FBL blades are great for big flight and autos.

I like Edge blades because of the noise they make, lol, they make this really mean growl when you pop them, great for showing off, but I tend to bog them a lot, because my collective management isn't that great.

got you bro
here at our field if the blade make a lot of noise we think they're no good, 'see" the reason for this is because they're too soft and flexing
too much in flight.
don't know if you will agree with me,
do you just stick to one blade or you have many preferences for your flight,? if you do i am sure you might experience some slight change in flight,
