Blade checksReady heli has the SABs here
I just picked up my set of the Align 425Ds, had them on the scale and the balance and they are spot on, the weight was 61.75 and the balance was less than a mm, while I had the stuff out I checked my other blades too, here is what I have found

Stock Aligns 425 CF 58.7
Align 425D CF 61.75
Align 430 CF 63.1
Radix 430 Cf 67.1

Now I balanced the 425ds first so all of the measurements are from them, their CG is farther out than all my current blades,
Stock Aligns CG is 11 MM closer to grip
Align 430 CG was 24 MM closer to the grip
Radix was 25 MM closer to the grip
This info does not really hold consistent with what we are all thinking about the blades, the Radix is a longer heavier blade that has it's balance closer the center of rotation, shouldn't it be quicker, and hold it's energy better?
I will be interested to see how the different factors in these blades will affect their performance this weekend?
