Default New mCP X Blades

I recently made myself a pair of custom foam blades. They are "wide-chord" compared to the stockers. They weigh in at about 2.6g, the same weight as the KBDD blades. Lift is somewhat improved, but is hard to tell on my dying batteries (nano-techs on the way). They flip excellently and I can flip losing no altitude, where with the KBDDs I would lose a lot. The bullet blades only cause me to lose a bit of altitude but not much. My custom blades, handle the wind a bit worse because of their larger surface area, and also give the heli a slight pitch up tendency in FFF, but that was probably exaggerated by the wind. Best of all, the make the heli feel light on its feet, makes the mCP X feel extremely agile. These are my favorite blades so far.

very cool, what original blades did you use to make them, or did you actually mold these yourself?

They are very cut down and sanded Helimax Novus CP blades. I came up with the shape and size myself.

I especialy like the look of those carbon fiber blades. Do you think this could be done by cutting down trex 250 blades?

Maybe, but these are foam blades, with a simulated CF sheet on top. Still less flex than the stock blades though.

Wow i didn't see they weren't real cf, maybe because i'm viewing them from the small screen of my iphone. Anyway, nice blades. I'm gonna look into making some real cf ones out of the 250 blades. Will report back here if it works out.

Just be careful you don't crack them while cutting.
