Quick update... the blades worked grate for about 6 charges... then one of the batteries wires came off... One tail blade still works like a champ...

Second set will be better

Congratulations.

My first set deconstructed during their maiden flight on a Protos 500. Maybe I'll try again if I see a design that works.

what size lipo and where did you mount it? Just strapped close to the root? Seems like it would be difficult to make it stay put at roughly 10,000 rpm
