I remember they tried to move their operation overseas but I guess it didn't work out. Then fbl became the new norm and they never caught up after being out of the game for so long. So many options to choose from. Or could be the wood they used became harder to source.

Radix gone too! Loads of blades to choose from still but you have to like bright graphics and names like Zip and Pow!

I stick with Align blades now, good price, been around a while, consistent, look nice, fly nice and predictably and auto well.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Yeah, years back it was mainly vblades, radix and sab. It is a shame to see two of them go, but so many great brands have gone away in this hobby.

hmm
It seems like Blade companies have a slightly smaller shelf life than heli companies. The really good ones have cut costs, or know a few people in the industry...

Radix isn't gone, they're just overseas now.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

I still have several sets of vBlades myself. Why get rid of them if they're good blades.

Yeah, I got about 4 sets of vblades and 3 sets of radix myself. I just hope to never use them all.
