Fly em, they will be quicker, you may have to adjust the FBL controller a little but they are perfectly good to fly...

What?
Or.

Sell them in the blades section and buy fbl blades?

I know guys who run fb blades, they have more pop.

If you run a fbl system, you run fbl blades.

I still run Radix V1 FB blades on one of my helis with a FBL setup. Like Ron said, try flying them before selling them at a loss.

Not all FB blades will fly acceptably on a FBL setup. Some FB blades are simply too aggressive and as a result, will not track well during aggressive manuevers when used on a FBL setup. The only way to tell is to try them and see if how they behave. Then you can decide whether it is worth the money to invest in additional blades.

Some of you may not know that Radix V1 FB fly very neutral (not swing forward or aft) and work perfectly ok on FBL systems, just lighter and therfore more pop.

For the most part you will be giving up stability at faster fwd flight with FB blades, and the heli may not want to hold attitude or porpoise.

FBL systems need a CG neutral blade, one that will not lag or swing forward and not change the rotor timing.

Some FBL systems can handle a bit of variance, but for optimun performamce and stability, stick with FBL blades.

Not all FBL fly the same, they come in all shapes and sizes, so buy a blade that meet your needs.

Don't assume you can't use them. I use fb blades on all my fbl helis. Probably do not want to use stick bangers, but any reasonable weighted blade will do fine. Fbl blades are heavier and may feel sluggish.

Many FAI blades can be utilized in both FB and FBL systems.
