The most stable i've used was 290mm ABS blade from Align, but that's for hovering only. You can even shave of some branches or hit some concrete with the tips of the blades with no harm done. Though, your rex will be somewhat tranquillized but that's what you're looking for, right?

IMHO this is a bad idea. First, you can't do acrobatics if the heli is too tame. And yes, I know he is learning, but with 325's and a little expo, he could get comfortable with it without crippling it. Just MHO. I hadn't flown in 8 years, and believe me, what I did 8 years ago really didn't count as flying. I used 25% expo to start and no flybar weights and I was fine.

I've just got a set of 335. I think it is a very good idea. You can have it stable, and very unstable by just changing your paddles to the 6g ones. Man, I had my hands full this weekend. Changed to the 8g paddles, and I am well more comfy learning rolls etc in close proximity (wich is relative to myself). Then, when you are OK, get the Gorila paddles Bob mentioned, which you can tune to your liking. There are lots of ways to get an unstable bird. Besides, neither 335 nor 325 aint in itself going to make such a difference for a begginer that it is going to make or brake you. There are many factors, and that 10mm on the blades, is just one small one.

My personal approacg, get 10 sets of cheap woodies from Taiwan, and fly the hell out of them!
