Align 3G blades on a flybarred heli?
Just curious, has anyone tried the Align 3G blades on a .50 flybarred machine?

I am about to get a Hirobo SDX in the air and hoping to be able to use it to practise some FAI stuff and looking for a heavy-ish stable blade without spending too much money (if possible). There is just not the range of choices in 600mm blades, they're all aimed at 3D or they're flybarless.

There is no reason why a FBL design blade will not fly well on a FB model, especially given your flying style.

Search my name and the terms FZ-5, SZ-5, SSZ-IV/V and mixing for a long article on how to make that head do exactly what you desire.

3G or other FBL blades will work pretty well for FAI type competition. You may give up a little error margin in autos but they are certainly adequate.

Hi Dr.Ben,

Unfortunately the search facility on here leaves a bit to be desired.

Inputting your name, FZ-5 (it will automatically remove the '-' anyway) and 'mixing' yields no results.

I tried every combination I could think of and found everything but the article you mention.

Maybe others know some tricks to doing searches here but I gave up after about a half hour. (I work in IT BTW so I know how these search engines work but this one ain't doin it I'm afraid)

----update, I just tried under 'SDX' and 'mixing' and found it! I shall read it now.
