Default Blade Size

What size blades are best for 3d on the x50b (redline .53) - 600's or 620's?

What is the performance difference between the two, and what are you guys running?

600's are easier on the motor, 620's are better for collective "pop" and autos.
I prefer 610's

I am running stock 600mm now and have my eyes on 603mm Edge. As for 620mm sizes can they work? It looks to me that there would be interference to the tail rotor.
Performance wise bigger disk means bigger stability but also more strain to the engine as it's more mass to spin.

I like the new SAB red 620 blades, but what brands do you recommend for 610's?

I find the 620s too floaty on the X50. So far I have tried Radix 600's, Edge 603's, GCT ultra pro extream 620's (Maveric pro wide chord) and the TT carbon blades that came with my two kits and my pick are the TT carbon blades and the Edge 603's.

I'm in the UK and all stockists seem to be out of Rotortech blades. Could anyone suggest a good US stockist please?

Same for asia. Virtually noone has 600 class blades on stock. Mat Botos blades are not here at all. I will probably try Edge or something...

Adam, ypu can use 625's. I used them for a min. I didnt like them as they were too slow on cyclic. They fly more like an airplane. I use the edge 603 fbl and they are great blades. I tried a set of the edge 603 fb and they flew awsome too. Both my x50's are FBL.
