Mains are GCT brand (no red stripe). Tails are SAB 105mm.
This set has two red "swoshes", instead of the usual 1 red/1 white.

Which do you prefer out of the 2 Dumbthumb75?

You will have a fave ;)


Still too early to conclude. Diabolo get more flighttime for now...;)

Those CGT look very similar to the Mavrikk. I like the SABs with all red! How do those mains feel?

Thanks!

Hard to see in the pics, but the windshield is actually anthracite gray (not black). Has quite a bit of metallic and really pops in the sun! :thumbup:

Nice looking color combo, very fresh .
I still often do a banked fly-by, just to get a good look at the TDR logo...:thumbup:

They are exactly the same as Mavrikk G5 fbl, just with euro GCT branding, whereas Mavrikk was a US brand.

http://www.derblattschmied.de/html/mavrikk_fbl.html

They are about 185gr, enough white for good visibilty at a distance, feels good.

They make a squeaking noise, especially at low HS. Sounds like a bone dry ball bearing...
I've experienced this with fb GCT's on my R50 too.

The second pic with this canopy looks sexier. But the first one should be more visible in the air, right?

Debatable, overcast days they can all become a black blob if your not careful, I have 2, a bright custom paint job and the Black with Yellow comet and metalic silver windscreen.
Now that windscreen I find is streets ahead on a sunny day when it glints nicely.

I also find the rotor disc is just as important, love huge stall turns away from the sun, really easy to keep orientation when a white rotor disc shines, love it when its that easy.
