Are you going to IRCHA? I'd bet you could try them there.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.

Been there, said that...for the last 4 or 5 years. The planets finally aligned this year.

I would suggest on the next set you buy you try a set of Cyclones. That way you will be able to experience their flight characteristics. Then as you need blades for the others you can make the change.

well with the sale going on, i got me a couple of pairs to try today. got a set for the 500 and 570, be glad when they get here and try them out and see how they are. wish they had a set for the 770. some 775 would be cool.also kind of wish i did not have to settle for 555's for the 570 some 575 would of been cooler, but we will see how they do.

flew the 570 yesterday with the new cyclone blades, and all i could do is say wow. heli felt more precise. i did not really seem to get longer flight times, they were about the same. but i was pushing it harder than usual checking the blades out. so im sure with normal flying i would get longer flights. i have not flew the 500 yet but im sure it will be the same with it. did not have to change anything i just put the blades on and flew. felt way more locked in. glad i tried these out finally. be really good to see some for a 770 size heli. as good as the blades are i was tempted to convert the 770 to 700, but i think i will wait and see what happens. maybe pick up a 700 size heli.

I fly my 570 on 555's and these are my first set of Cyclones. I really like them. Tons of pop! I fly mostly rails on my other helis. The cyclones require less collective pitch at the same headspeed in my opinion. Nice blades I'm happy with them.

I tried a set on my 700e and was not impressed. Had to increase the cyclic to get a similar flight to my rail covers blades. Didn't feel as quick or crisp as my rail blades. I would love to try a set of VTX blades.
