Default 3-packs for tri-blade helicopters

Is there any plans for a 3-pack of blades?

I am thinking about the Goblin / Align tri-blade setups that use 3 bladed tail rotors and head

I could use a 3-pack of 690mm mains and 105mm tail blades

Fun-Key would need to make WAY lighter blades for this to work, especially with the wide tip. The lightest 700 size Fun-Key blade I've seen was EDGE FB at 180g, which is still quite heavy if you want them to be agile.
Maybe if they use their blue (light) foam and only like 10g of lead, then you'd most likely get in trouble with spanwise CG though. It's difficult.

Default cyclone

OK I'm sorry to dissopoint guys. I'm good friends with Tim Jones and I have discussed it. The market is just not there for Tim to make a 3 blade kit.

With that being said. Taking 3 cyclones to make a 3 blade set will not work
3 blade takes a hole new design. So please don't try it. There to heavy of a blade and I pretty sure 3 blade design is a lighter blade.

Cheers . keep flying cyclones

...or, you can make two 3-blade sets from three 2-blade sets if you don't mind balancing one blade in each 3-blade set. I did this with 520s. You just find the lightest set of the three and put each of those blades with one of the other sets. Then you balance the "odd" blades against one of the others in the set. This would technically work with Cyclones, although it wouldn't be optimal by any stretch.

I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

They'll fly like shit if you do this. Way too much rotational mass. assuming one Cyclone is 195g, you'll end up with 390g for a twoblade set and 585g for a triblade set. 1/3 more rotational mass, way slower cyclic. Nick Maxwell did it right, Helix triblade are around 140g/blade so you end up with 420g in the disk, insignificantly more than with twoblade.
