Jonas, I’ve been following your Rotortech 610 Ultimate thread on the main page. How do the VTX blades compare to the Rotortechs?

Iíve been looking for a long time for these to be in stock to try them.
Finally snagged a set and tried them on my 550 stretch.

Very very nice blades. For me what I noticed from my one flight is They seem to have a really linear cyclic rate. I took off my 600 rails and did no changes.
Hover was rock solid. Cyclic feel wasnít crazy fast, but very enjoyable. High speed runs had no surprises.

Being a bit smaller than the 600ís autos had less reserve but still capable.

VTX projects are currently on hold.

Minimum requirements for all production at Funkey require a 1000 piece production run on all new blade production. A 50% deposit up front, is also required.

During testing early in the 2019 season the 607 blade design ran into some problems. To adjust and change these issues would have taken some additional time, effort and additional finances. Without a guarantee we could get them into the 2019 season and actually turn a profit on them, we had to make a decision to hold off on the project until it makes more financial sense for VTX Designs.

Funkey increased *all* production costs by 10% this year. Freight and tariff imports additionally, increased dramatically. Thus, from a financial standpoint, it was and still is exceptionally difficult project to turn into fruition.

So, we truly apologize that no new VTX projects have come to the market. We wish it were not the case. We have a lot of design work in the 607 and tail blade designs, so we will not be walking away, we just need to assure our finances do not jeopardize our other segments of our business model and bringing them to market this year 100% would have affected our other ventures dramatically.
