Maybe RCA ??
Looked as if their 3 blade set ups were flying just fine..
They looked good to me on Joels 350

Hi Jay, I have the funkey blade set, but they are wide also. You will find that most all of the blades out there are wider than a true scale blade. The only narrow option that I know of is the spin blades. They have a much more scale chord width than most of the blades on the market. I haven't seen the RCA blades up close yet...

Blades..
Looks as if RCA only has the carbon fiber blades in 650mm and larger..
But I would check with them first and if not I would also choose the Spin Blades...

Ordered blades
I ordered some blades yesterday from empire hobby. i ordered the spin blades 600mm so we will see how they work.I have heard nothing but good things about them. Still need to find a spot to put the beast for setup.I want to try and keep everything tight and looking good so we will see where it ends up. Will show you a pic of the blades when they get here..

Glad to hear that you have blades on the way. Just my personal experience, but I would keep the FBL unit accessible. I like to tuck them away too, but it makes it a real PITA to get to for adjustments etc..

Yes Sir I understand i just want to hide the wires useing the beast and then another receiver it has a lot of extra wires. I am just wanting to make sure all looks good when done. I will have the beast on the back but there is no plate for it to sit on so am going to make one just not sure where.
Thanks for the help.. Jay

Jay,

I just received a set of the 530MM Spin blades for the Hirobo LAMA and hovered yesterday. There is a lot more lift than I had with the 550mm wood blades and they are really smooth. I think you are going to like them. I had to make a mount for my FBL unit as well and located it on the front of the mechanics. It will be covered by the rear seats once I make them but it will still be easily accessible. I have an extension for the LED indicator lights so I will mount that in the instrument panel.

Looking forward to seeing more progress.

Andrew

10-4 I figured as much You will love the spin blades, but they will take some getting used to. They produce a ton of lift at lower head speeds. I had to set my center stick collective at 3ish degrees vs 5 degrees because my heli was getting light on the skids at 1/4 stick!

Update.Tail boom smaller braces
I made some of the smaller tail boom braces today, They are made from a trex 450 tail brace I cut them and then added a 600 ball link to the other end.
Then with my rework station i bent the ball links with hot air to get them where they needed to be. They maybe a little hard to see but when it is done they should stand out..

Also tried to find out where i am going to put the esc and battery. I think i might have it figured out but i am sure it will change. Thanks for looking Jay..

New Struts & Tail rotor guard
Thanks Stan, I was wondering if they are going to be too long. I know Barry was saying that he had to go to only 3* of pitch instead of 5 because he was getting lift at 1/4 stick.
I'm sure they will produce enough lift to fly it pretty well.

Got a couple of things done today 1 more strut added from behind the doors back to the landing gear.

And also added the tail rotor guard made it out of a 450 flybar and screwed it in to the bottom of the tail rotor mount in the hard plastic.it will look better once it is painted.

I am going to start on the interior sometime soon trying to figure out what way to go. The canopy has to be spread a little to get it on past the servo's. so cant really make it a stay in there so still trying to see what will work best. Thanks for looking Jay

rough floor pan and bulk head out of cardboard
I started on the floor and bulk head out of cardboard before I make it out of lite ply. I think i am going to have to use magnets to hold in a few things because of the way the fuse goes on.
It has to be spread out to be put on so and permanent thing would not allow the fuse to be spread out. I have to make the stuff a little longer and wider but thats why you do it out of cardboard first.
Next is going to be the seats and instrument panel. Hope you all like and any thing you could add Please do? Thanks Jay
