fwiw..

Plastic parts work fine....Upgrade when you break 'em if it feels good...

Good luck!

Fry bar?

Works stock fine. Crashes are upgrade opportunities.

Be careful. I've seen plastic blade grips explode first hand and it ain't pretty. I know that a lot of people have used them but use caution

Do a search for plastic blade grips breaking in flight and you'll be surprised!!

If there's a fry bar, I want seasoned curly fries...

The other day one of the newer guys was at the field with a 700 class gasser. I forgot which brand it was exactly, but it was one of the less common ones I see out at the field and it was swinging 710mm main blades. As it reached full head speed on the pad, which was set at 1,900rpm (and it sounded about right), the head blew with a loud bang.
Take the information as is given. Nothing wrong with injecting a little of experience but creating panic is not the best approach.

Two different situations here. One as described by the thread starter, the helicopter is brand new, and he is assembling it. Just asking a simple question. The other situation is hearsay from a guy at a field that doesn;t even know the brand of helicopter, most likely a conversion, doesn't even know the correct headspeed, and most importantly, doesn't even know the crash histtory of the helicopter in question. Hardly could be considered on this thread subject.

Not defending any manufacturer, we all have our own experiences.

No offense but neither of those links goes to a thread that mentions a failed Trex 600N grip.

The first is gassers...700s.

The second was some vague mention of a couple really old electric 600s that have been re-tooled and re-designed...and some really old 450s.

Most grips that fail have been banged up and nobody admits it or over tightened with the wrong shims.

Plastic helis have lower vibes....They also always break in a crash...even if you don't know it.
Throw away your plastic grips if something happens that breaks a blade.

I literally never use the word literally right.
