Where's the Blades?!?
Soooo, does anyone know why I can't find any 690mm-713mm FBL blades any where? Radix, Edge, Rails, Cyclones? Can't seem to find anything in stock at the main sites.

Are MFGs tooling up for the new flying season or am I just screwed?

I agree, I have noticed this as well. There are plenty of the brands you listed new on ebay for sale if you want to go that route.

The Rails, Edge and Radix blades are all made by Funkey/Rotor Tech. I know many of the Rotor Tech FBL blades are available from various shops.

As they are not advertisers here, PM me if you wish to know them.

I checked there and a few other places and most of the sizes and brands I want are out of stock, in fact, they've been out of stock for at least a couple of months now. Same with HD.

I also heard that Edge blades won't be restocked is that true?

I want to try the Radix 690 FBL ones...but looking in for almost a year now and they never seem to be in stock.

I always like how shorter blades fly but since I can never find any in stock, I am running 713mm on my Forza 700.

I miss the days when I could go online and find any brand and any length I wanted with ease. I know the hobby market has tapered off a bit but it feels like blades are becoming as hard to find as new Nitro helis.

That's not good...I really like the look and feel of Edge blades. I might give Cyclones a shot...can anyone talk on their quality and feel?

That's what I heard also...maybe just rumor though.

Probably still made by Funkey anyway, like most others.

i found this at the switch blades fb profile

Switch Rotorblades are manufactured by Fun-Key Aeroplane Models in Hong Kong
so it seems they are few manufacturers that just sell them to be re-branded

check out this thread

https://rc.runryder.com/t786467p1/

Also call wayne at hobby hut rc or check out the web site. the wall is stocked with blades there. also have a whole line of switch blades as well

I wonder how much of the out of stock blades had to do with the port slowdown on the west coast with all the container ships just sitting the harbour in Seattle and LA and SF...Fly Hard......Team Viagra
