Making all size Night Blades

Making all heli night blade sizes from 250 up (working on perfecting 130X and possibly McpX)

I have on hand most times a selection of carbon fiber and fiberglass blades.
I use -
- brand new 1 cell lipos (70mAh up to 250mAh) on each blade and test them and then put back on a storage charge before shipping.
- Switches on each blade to conserve battery power between flights.
- Charge connectors on each blade and I include a parallel charge lead to charge both batteries at the same time with your charger, included are either 4mm bullets for direct connection to your charger or a connector of your choice (Jst, Deans/T-type, Banana and some others upon request).
- I use silver coated copper electrical trace tape that won't tarnish like plain copper.
- LEDs and appropriate resistors for each one. You can choose how many LEDs, which colors (I have every color LED they make), and the spacing. I also put one on the very tip, visible from the top bottom, and eye level which helps with flying orientation because you can always see that tip LED no matter which way the heli is angled.
- For carbon fiber blades I isolate the carbon fiber blade edges to prevent fast battery drain.
- For Nitro or gasser helis I spray a clear coat over the whole blade.
- I take my time with each blade and solder each trace joint and also put a thin coat of CA over them and all along the trace tape edges and LEDs and resistors. I also use double sided foam tape between the battery and blade then wrap the whole battery and blade (and charge connectors and switches) with strips of strapping tape and finally a quality shrink wrap over all of that.
- Lastly I weigh and balance the blades so they are ready to fly when you get them.

*For prices please PM me here on HF or email me at [email protected]

* I guarantee my blades with a one time fix of any problems with them (not crash related) if they are sent back to me. I will cover return shipping back to you.
*I can not guarantee the batteries because anyone can kill any lipo battery if not used correctly. I can replace them though for a fee. I always use brand new lipo batteries and test them before shipping.
*I can also fix crashed night blades if the actual blade is not destroyed (price depends on what needs to be fixed).

To see some pictures of some of the night blades I have done click on the picture below my name and then you will see the album with the night blades. Thanks for looking! Tim
