Which Blades would be feasable for a 600E size scale project? Going on a RCAerodyne TFM600 Plug-N-Play 4-Blade Rotorhead which will be mounted on 600E mechanics then into a Eurocopter EC155-B1 fuse.

You dont need anything special, i use Radix 600mm on my 4 blade setup.

Century sells 4 blade sets that are flat gray i think that I believe are fiberglass so they are a bit cheaper and balanced as a set

The plastic TF Model scale blades work, but only if you will be hovering or in very slow forward flight. If you plan on flying it fast, or under any wind, the plastic blades flex too much and they do not work. I run the century flybarless rotortech blades, which work awesome, but they are a bit too wide for static display. Century just released their new line of rotortech scale multi blades. I have not tried them yet, but they look very scale, and they are made from carbon fiber. They are black with yellow tips. They should work pretty good and the price is low. Skyhunter hobby has them in stock.

Hi,

i can recommend the 600mm Multiblade System from Spinblades

http://www.spinblades.com/index.php...0&product_id=66

i use them on my Hughes 500E with the 5 Blade plug-n-play head from TF-Model and they run absolutly perfect...one blade wheight is only 73g, they are made from CFK

Here you see the bladeset on my Hughes.

woolf_66, are these blades CF as I do not want to trust my scale project to plastic or fiberglass. Also what are your thoughts on the TFM multi-blade head? I'm considering the TFM600 4-blade model. Thanks

hi skiidogg,

the spinblades are not fully material like the TF Blades,they are from special fiberglass. for comparison, a TF model weights 162 grams-blade, a Spinblade blade weights73gramms. the power consumption with the TF-Model blades was extremely high.. battery, speedcontroller and motor were very hot. Since i have use the Spinblades.. battery, speedcontroller and motor stay cool.

With the TFM600 5-blade Head I am very satisfied, the quality of the head is very good and it works very well with the Microbeast BEASTX.

The advantage of TFM600 5-blade Head is no need to use Swashplate rotation in Flybarless System.

Regards
Wolfgang

so they are lighter than carbon fiber but can they stand up to a fairly weighty scale fuselage such as a EC-155 Dauphine or a Bell-230 when doing banking or high speed forward flight? By swashplate rotation do you mean no need for a swashplate follower, and would that be true for the 4-blade version? Thanks.

There's no need to phase the head, as the "J" arms do the job for you. The J arms also do away with the need for a swash follower.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Got it!! Hence this is the same as the plug-N-play head. Thanks Mojave.
