Does anybody have any first hand experience with 420mm blades on a EP8v2?

I had some bad luck with the QJ 400mm CF blades and want to try something else.
For details see this thread: http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?p=2306230#post2306230

Are there any other brands that make 400mm blades that fit?
Thanks!

I will look into this and let you know. If I rememger correctly, MAH has a set of blades that work nicely. How about Curtis Younblood blades?

I am mostly concerned about using 420mm blades with a standard length tail boom.
I don't want some kind of crazy tail and main blade interaction.

Try the MS Compsit 420s. Helicopter Hobbies should have tjem in black or white.

I want to say that I have run the MS Composit 420mm rotor blades for the past 3 years. They are the best running blades I have ever run on my EX. I run them on my SP and they were great. The white blades are a little lighter than the black CF blades and they are just as stiff. I must say they added about 1 minute to my run time on my EX. I got an extra set for my EX from Charles of Helicopter Hobbies.
