RAIL all the way. I've tried many types over the years and the Rails are excellent. They hold a line perfect and give you great pop when needed.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

blades are very big debate, it is VERY personal preference. I use different blades on different helis.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

All those blades you listed are probably made by 4 or 5 companies.

They sell you the same thing with a different label.

what size heli are we talking about here? Rail only has three sizes to choose from, as do a few of the ones listed. What type of flying are you into? Are you a beginner, intermediate, or advanced pilot?

Blades
I haven;t yet tried the rail blades, but by all accounts they are excellent. Of the blades I've tried I like Radix, Rotortech, and the newer wide chord Mavrikk blades. steve

1. Rotortech C-tips these are very efficient and seem to use less power in maneuvers than other blades I have tried.

2. Radix

I would love to try Rail then Edge in that order.

ENGAGE!!

I prefer a good sharp mulching blade for the summer. The grass won't stop growing with all this rain we've been having.

As for helicopter blades.
How well can you fly? if you're just learning, any blade will do just fine to suit your needs.

I prefer unbroken blades. The broken ones don't fly good.

I fly the Align 3G blades on everything. Good balance of performance and cost. Also had very good luck with Edge FBL blades.

I like the Mav G5 Pro wide cords. The fbl versions are super stable on an fbl ship and the FB versions are pretty snappy on an fbl ship.

For the 50s I like the Radix stick bangers because they bite and recover very fast. On the 90's I like Radix for the same reason or EDGE because you can set a fair amount of pitch and still get great performance.

What constitutes an Expert?
I never heard of "expert blades", If I did I would probably use them!

An expert is usually someone who has made all the mistakes, lol.

Blades are very much a personal preference, kind of like shoes.
