i'm using their 105mm blades on a stretched Trex 600 and their 115mm blades on a KDS Agile 7.2... They work fine for anything i'm capable and seem to perform just as well as carbon blades.

They are nice in the way that it you have a tail strike on landing they usually dont take out the gears or bend the tailshaft like CF tail blades do. less hard but still somewhat brittle. Slap another set on and you are flying abain, no TT repair or tailshaft swap.

They hold just about the same, if only a little less... IDK, push it hard enough and either will blow out. High Vis.

I have used KBDD plastic tail blades on 450-700. Never had an issue, they are capable of more than I can throw at them at this time. Always locked in and stable and the visibility. I might not be able to tell the difference between KBDD's and carbon tail blades, but if I can see it I can fly it.

I ran the 112EE for a while and they worked well. In my experience they were far tougher than CF tail blades. The only drawback I found was they were also noticeably heavier. But bulletproof. They could take some ground contact better than almost any others I've tried.

I have been using KBDD 96mm tail blades on my Compass 550U. Absolutely no problems at all... Excellent tail holding and very tough too.

It's a toss up between neon green and orange tail blades when it comes to visibility. I do like the combination of neon green tail blades and orange main blades (which I am using on the 550U, Chronos, and my X3s). Very visible in the sky even on cloudy days.



The KBDD main blades (550mm on my 550U and 690mm on my Chronos) also generate loud barks which I like.

I use KBDD Tail Blades on every machine that KBDD has blades the appropriate size for (wish they had some for the Velos 880!).
