FBL blades have their CG shifted out more away from the center (toward the tip) allowing for improved flight stability. The increased stability would show up mostly in big air maneuvers. What you might notice doing 3D or smack would be decreased cyclic response versus the FB blades which have a narrower CG. In a hover the FB blades might be slightly twitchier, but the BX will smooth it out.

Since FBL blades are typically more expensive, and more popular, and more newer, they likely get incremental improvements that their FB counterparts don't receive. I always run the FBL versions, for that reason and to make life easier on my cyclic servos.

Meh. Not me. Ive been rockin the snot out of a set of FB Revos for a while now. They do fine as far as I can tell. I have no problem with running FB blades.

Wow! I think that 300 X canopy is at the top of my favorites list. Looking at the Fusuno site, it appears to be the "Furious Racing" scheme, but your picture looks better than theirs. Your red really pops with the yellow and green. Nice choice! Sure wish Fusuno would make custom canopy for 500 X, cause I'd order that immediately.

I'll be adding an FBL system and metal servos for the Cyclic and a new setup for the motor and ESC very shortly. Mostly Lynx modifications on this one and more coming.

Thanks Ed. Actually for some reason the red one of the 450 just will NOT photograph well. Something about it jacks the focus up on my iPhone camera. The pics really don't do it justice. It looks even better in person. Plus it is VERY visible in the air. Better than any of the 5 canopies I have flown for the 450. I like it so much I have considered having one special made for the 300.
