Default Rc Aerodyne Carbon Scale Blades

Hi,

I probably should have asked this BEFORE I bought them but has anyone had any experience with the carbon scale blades from RC Aerodyne?

http://www.scaleflying.com/New-Item-...s-_p_2439.html

Any idea on headspeed required for these as they dont mention it on their website. On an EFL Pro 500 with an Align 4 bladed head.



Regards,

Adrian

Late reply, but here is it
I run them at 1850 with a scorpion 1210. No probs, but get ready to add pitch as they are WAY too narrow.
My advice: throw them to the freaking trash as the junk they are and buy some normal chord blades. 473mm x 40mm would look glorious.. It will fly much nicer and you will not have a white knuckle moment, in example, trying to arrest sinking when close to ground. Not to mention when you try to remove those bizarre reflective stickers (are these blades really made for scale??) and find that they are beneath the gel coat and will leave a very visible sunken area on the upper side of the blade...

Thanks for the feedback.

RC Aerodyne say not to run them with more than 1600 rpm but that normally applies when you are running normal cord blades.... maybe a higher headspeed or a normal headspeed is required?

I agree about the reflective tape but I was going to paint the blades matt black anyway so its a non-issue for me.

I have not seen too many 500 sized helis running less than 1600rpm, even with 4 blades.

I have not had great success with running RCAs 600mm scale blades - very floaty and tended to balloon in FF.

Same here specially in Washington, were there's always windy conditions. I got them flying okay, I just didn't like the way they behave on windy conditions. No wind, they fly very good, but truthfully unless you fly indoors, you will always have to deal with the wind. So I'm back to symmetrical fiberglass scale blades. Funkey 600 mm
