I have some on right now actually, they're okay, not as sharp (read: twitchy) as the stock 3d blades, less heavy feeling than the stock bullets, but they bog less than KBDD blades on my brushed and they're cheap as hell, about as strong as the KBDD but a bit thinner meaning they don't seem to chip and shatter like the Eflite blades, they'll last longer. I'm happy with them, I run a mostly stock MCPX and I'm no 3D pilot, FFF / flips and inverted hovering is as far as I go right now.

Not to hijack this thread, but...I was wondering the same thing about the AEO fiberglass frame. Someone out there has to have tried their products!

Great !!

Glad someone has used them !!
The price is really good. I was ready to order a set but wanted to know what they were like before I did.
They sound pretty good , so I'm going to order a set now !!
Cheers !!

Like I say, I'm no pro pilot, but I am happy with them. For their price they are great.

For what it's worth, fastlads sell them cheaper.

They also do a bullet that I haven't tried.

That's cool !! nice one !!
I didn't check fast lad for them. Going to pick up a few pairs
at that price.
Fast lad is an awesome shop. Their service is second to none.

BTW, where about in Wales are you ?

Thoes blades look nice all black and would be great for a scale application.

I'm up North, Anglesey. Wet and windy Anglesey!

They are nice looking blades, all black with a dull shine to them. I like the white KBDDs for the same reason. I'll be buying them again over the KBDDs though, I'd be interested to hear how they perform on brushless.

I have a pair. Price is very good, but buy them only if you tore up all of your other blades

Flight performance is similair to stock unweighted blades. KBDD blades outperform these (not a biased opinion). When they are mounted on the blade grips, they are actually a bit longer than KBDD's or stock blades. They feel a tad but "floatier" but aren't as "poppy".
