Default What are the best blades

Has anyone tried the align f @ d CF blades. Are they better for 3D then the stock CF blades? What is the best hard 3D blade?

GCT Ultra's. 5cm wide cord. IMO they are more snappy and auto better than the White CF Aligns.

The original white CF blades are the best IMO. I flown alot of 500 blades, and liked them the best. They are quick, light, have great pop, they have the best mixure of all the blades. For the Record, radix blades are slow and heavy, only good for autos and smooth 3d, or FF. Not for fast hard 3D. Personally dont like his blades on any bird. The regualr white blades are my favorite.

I heard that they're better than the stock blades and I've seen them fly and they seemed fine. They're lighter than stock, but I prefer the stock ones. I've tried the CYB blades and cyclic is slow.

Thanks for all the replys . It was what I needed to here . I have only flowen the stock white blades and they have been great. Just was buying a spare set of blades and wanted to know if I should try something different.

Using wide chord blades also means you have to decrease your pitchrange a bit or else you'll bog the stock motor a lot. I going to try the 12T pinion and 13/13 pitch with the Mavrikk G5 430mm blades, hopefully that helps a bit. For now I think the stock carbon blades are better for aggressive flying.

I've really been liking the SAB 430s. They have TONS of pop, fast cyclic, and auto fine. What else can I want? The 500 rocks!
