Default A 425 blade recommendation

Hi, been out of the game for a while and bought a Trex 500L Dominator. What's good blade for autorotations and aerobatics (mild 3D)? I don't do smack flying. Thanks, Marc.

I'm flying some unobtainable revolution FBL blades (out of biz) I would say give Switch blades a try (old EDGE blades molding)

I've also heard of guys running HALO 450mm without issues on stock length boom
Rail blades are also popular and quiet blades

If you're feeling exotic MS composite rapids have some 430mm available .
But you might have to get them from worldofheli in Germany

Good luck!

KBDD 430mm EE work great for all types of flying from sport to smack. They carry enough momentum to do inverted autos on a 500 size heli. Plus they are very visible against any background.

The KBDD orange blades worked well when I had my 500L. My best choice is Rail.
