Default Xtreme Blade Grips...Anyone tried them?

Has anyone tried the xtreme blade grips for the MSRX? They show out of stock but I would like to try them when they come back. For $6 its worth a shot.

Never tried them but they don't look like they solve the issue of the balls breaking off. That was my biggest issue before switching over to the rkh ones.

Yeah I guess your right. Those balls appear to be plastic just like the factory piece. Well dang, I thought that may be a cheap fix. $20 blade grips here I come lol...

Its a cheap investment in the long run since you'll never need a new grip again.
Side note, Xtreme products are pretty crappy from both mine and others experience. Its not terrible with non moving parts like say if they made canopies or landing skids etc, but if its a part that is apart of movement they always seem unbalanced or poorly aligned.

Very good point. MH or RK it is for those items.

I did purchase some Xtreme CF skids and tail fin and they seem pretty nice for the price especially. I will post some pics later today when I install.

Think I am going to go with a full metal head, grips, swash etc...seems to tighten the helis up a lot. Any recommendations on replacement upgrades for the main shaft? All of them I see are sold out.

Never had an issue with the stock main shaft....its pretty tough and i abuse the crap out of my msrx including full speed dives from over 100ft up into the asphault lol.

The only things I break now are skids and blades....oh and one servo arm.

Yeah mine is fine too. I guess I figure if im going to change everything else out might as well. Sometimes even small hairlines that are difficult to detect by eye will throw it off.
