Hi!
reading your stories is interesting. I just disguard the offtopic bashing writings. I think CFD gives a better understanding but in the end all blades have to be test flown. So If you have time and fun in it I see nothing against it to do so.
I made some blades myself too and I'm currently making a copy of a700 blade that isn't for sale anymore. Enthousiastic as I was a lot of fellow pilots said: you're not going to fly those are you? Wel except for the first trial blades I don't see why not........
I guess people are very cautious when it comes to blades. Well, I looked inside quite a few blades and the best blades made me fearful.....
So heads up, the most bright poeple have always been crazy in the eyes of men.

Lighter blades are fine in flybarred helis but the weight is where a lot of the stability comes from in a FBL heli.

60% of the time, it works every time!
