Those I sold went out with the 9T pinion and stretch blades still in the sealed bags...and a recommendation to try it first with the stock blades and 10T
That is how i am flying this one, long boom, stock blades, it does have bigger lynx tail blades 38mm. but doesn't a smaller pinion make it spin faster? not sure for the way i'm headed if it would hurt or not, i'm trying to get lower headspeeds.



I am going to tach mine today to see what I get

Hi Epoweredrc,
Where did you source the Lynx 38 mm tail rotor blades?
Does anyone know if the 38 mm Gaui 100/200 tail rotor blades would make a suitable substitute if the Lynx blades are no longer available?
Any information gratefully received.

Default 180 mm Main Rotor Blades from the Fusion 180?

Re: 180 mm Main Rotor Blades from the Fusion 180?
For those Helifreakers who could not source the Lynx 180 mm stretch blades will the Fusion 180 blades (BLH5801) fit a stretched original 180 CFX and would the 36 mm Fusion 180 tail rotor blades (BLH5817) be worth trying?

I never had a Trio...but the word on the street is that it was backward compatible with the 2-blade design...

And since the Fusion's blade grips are supposedly the same as the trio...

Main blades should fit the previous versions...

Meaning that Blade has done what Lynx totally refuses to do...and re-introduced a new heli that should backwardly convert any previous model to the stretch length...boom - supports - servo rod - main and tail blades

$7.99 and shipping will tell the truth

Nobody mentioned Oxy...and in a Blade Forum you should not either

My comment was that Lynx bluntly refuses to produce any more of the 180CFX stretch parts...(citing lack of demand)

And Horizon Hobby breaks the mold wide open by introducing a new model of the 180CFX that should be backward compatible...

If in fact the main blades are a true 180mm...and the tail blades are 36mm...the rest of the airframe should also accommodate the stretch size

Therefore providing a much needed supply of stretch parts to previous models

All while remaining the only mfg'r to have a CP heli under the FAA's minimum registration weight of 250g

You still haven't learned that oxy is lynx after it was explained 100 times to you and even by Luca.
And what rule states I can't say oxy here?

You makes zero sense if you mean lynx refuses to make a longer boom for the 180 cfx based on your statement below. Why would they? They have their own small micro now. Why make another companie's heli better for them anymore once they switched to designing helis instead of making upgrades? Let the original company do it themselves.

You are so wrong on so many levels that it's actually hilarious...

Lynx is an upgrade mfg'r/vendor for many brands/models...

Oxy Heli is a division of Lynx Heli Innovations

Lynx still makes many upgrade products...even for Oxy helicopters

Nobody denies they are owned by the same individual

But Lynx has missed a very much alive market by refusing to produce any added stretch parts for the 180-series heli's by Blade...

And the Fusion 180 is the result of Horizon Hobby's knowledge and marketing technology...if the forecasts hold true they have pretty much taken over the production of stretch parts for previous models

A market that Lynx had locked up tight until they discontinued 180CFX parts production

So once the vendors obtain stock shipments of Fusion 180 parts...it will completely revive the 180 CFX stretch options...and a parts supply that will last many years

Which is in fact...the whole point of this thread

You denied it over and over in the oxy threads before everyone told you to gtfo.

If the demand were so amazing, Lynx would continue it. But since you have a keen knowledge on sales figures, you da man and know it all! Lol.

Just remember your ridiculous drivel that started the thread "What to do about jon jet's constant trolling."
You're a self-proclaimed heli expert in all aspects, but you could you even properly assemble a micro heli and flybarless unit and you blamed oxy. https://www.helifreak.com/showthread...light=trolling

Sorry. I can't take your seriously based on the ebay store you run. It's comical.

Prime Excalibur?
Prime Excellion?

Jfc.

My issues with Oxy Heli are well documented...and rooted in the Quality Control when compared to Lynx and Blade with regards to the Oxy2 and Oxy3

I have it on good resource that the typical global stock for a new Horizon model release is in the neighborhood of 40,000 - 50,000 units...with a 2nd run of product awaiting any revisions that might be needed...set to occur within 180 days

Not bad for a company that expects less than 2% of it's annual sales to come from CP heli's

So I think the demand speaks for itself...but it seems HH didn't need your advice about doing it themselves since the Fusion 180 is already in release

And My PM box has lit up all day with PM's from supportive HF'ers who were sick of the ridicule they got in the Oxy Forums so they just quietly disappeared and refuse to ever return

Now that everyone can see WHO the real troll is...by all means carry on


Edit: And thanks for the free advertising

Smh.
Like I said and you were told many times you still think lynx and oxy are a different thing with different lines running or something and that quality control differs. Same small shop in Vietnam.
You have zero understanding of manufacturing, parts variance and failure rates.

I'm sure with your "inside line" on Blade helis you're spot on with 50k 180s in a dying hobby. Lmao. I have a bridge to sell you. I call it the Excellion.

You're a pure BSer through and through with antidotal nonsense you post as truths. It's the same with your ridiculous ebay store.

And every post you have made in this thread...going back more than two years...

Contributes nothing to the topic...but instead is a personal attack aimed at Me...simply because you have a sad devotion to a small shop in Vietnam and choose to bring it into a Blade Forum

Smell that? It's called hypocrisy. You cry 'personal attack' while doing so yourself.

So you are saying it's alright for other HF members to:

Post the acronym "gtfo"?

Repost My ebay ads only to ridicule the price?

Mention another brand in an obvious Blade Forum?

Drag up nonsense from another forum a long time ago that has no relevance whatsoever to this thread?

Can you post the relevant parts of the HeliFreak UA that govern the above?

Lest I miss a point...how do you suggest I should respond to such posts when they are obviously targeted directly at Me?
