Default What size tail rotor blades?

If I was looking for tail rotor blades, what size am I looking for, do I need to know the grip size? Thanks

What's wrong with the stock tail rotor blades Bret? They work really, really well.

John,

There's nothing wrong with the stock yellow tail blades. I run Rotortech tail blades on all my predators so I thought I'd give a set of Rotortech 92mm blades a try, it's just a larger disc surface and with Steven coming out of flips and starting to do some backwards manouvers and tail slids he perfers the larger disc. Hotwings has also tried larger tails blades, Tim on the other hand likes to fly the stock yellow. You know Ron and I have money trees in the back yard and just love to spend it.

I'm sure the yellow blades are just fine, I was just wanting to know, just in case I ran across a really cool set!

I've been using 95mm plastic blades. I like the extra authority they offer. I've got a set of Century TUFF BLADES and RAPTOR 95mm that came with a RAPTOR 60 I used to have... they both work very well. The Rotor Tech 92's would be awesome as well... I'm gonna put the stock ones back on this weekend and see what the real difference's are and report back..

I liked the NHP 95mm. Provides a locked in feeling on the tail. Never used the stock so can't comment on that. One note, I did use vigor tail grips with thrust bearings with the 95mm til blades.

Right on the money Randy 85mm, I'm also ordering another set of 92mm Rotortechs for my new Tiger. The Rotortechs have a larger airfoil and give the tail some authority, I've also tried 95mm Rotortechs and 95 Carbon MS.

I've been running NHP 85mm tail blades on my Tiger.
The 95's would work too but are too close for striking the ground for me.
