SAB 179g, CG 355mm out from bolt, 60mm wide, 8mm thick
Rail 186g, CG 365mm out from bolt, 63mm wide, 8mm thick
Thanks for the info. Seems like there is a direct correlation between blade weight and ability to auto. Esprit Model has some specs on the Rotortech 690 3D. Only 168g. I bet they will be the fastest blades but auto really badly.

Airfoil makes a large difference as well but spinning mass is rather strait forward. Wonder where the span wise CG is on those Rotortech's?
