YES!! rotortech makes some fantastic fiberglass blades. I flew a set on a Pantera 50 for a whole summer at 2000HS as hard as I can fly them. It was pointed out to me later by someone that knew better that they were FG not CF. I would never do that again knowing what I know now. They were they grey FG blades Century sells.

But im telling you man they were the best blades I have ever flown on a 50 period end of story.

If your not going to do 3D you should be fine as for the size 690s are smaller lighter and will free up a bit of power for the heli and 710s will be a bit heavier and auto better. You are not worried about 3D performance so if I were you I would probaly go for the 710s
ENGAGE!!

Keep the invert stuff simple be gentle and smooth. Remember FG blades are not as stiff as CF so be gentle with any moves using down elevator as im sure you would not want to flex the FG blades into your tail boom.

Boom strikes suck.
ENGAGE!!

But don't leave them in a hot car. They will warp. Carbon blades "reset" at a much higher temperature than glass blades.

No theory .... pure experience.
