Amain shows some of the latter in stock in store. Perhaps if somebody really wanted them they would ship:

https://www.amainhobbies.com/blade-2...h1503c/p479950
It shows "discontinued, not available for purchase". You had my hopes up for a second there.
Interested in selling any of the 1503c's to me? I have one good one left haha

My page reads this:

Store: HobbyTown Orland Park (Chicago Metro)
City: Orland Park, IL
(708) 349-8697
Shelf Location: f12:01:1

In Stock In Store! - Check Others

So the store there has them and perhaps if you called they would ship them to you for a fee. Or perhaps you know someone in the Chicago area.


Here are some of the Yellow Zeal 238mm I found in stock online:

I ended up getting a set of BLH4501C (Blade 245mm) blades today. The balance was very slightly off for both weight and CG, but good enough that most pilots would never notice anything. I'm a perfectionist though, so a little scotch tape and I got em balanced perfectly.

Went to install them and found out the root is a tad thicker than stock, and was a bit too tight in the grips even before putting the bolts in. A little sandpaper treatment later, and they did like stock. Checked balance again, still perfect.

Anxious to test fly with the 245's tomorrow, weather permitting

So I flew it today with the Blade 245mm CF blades on it. HOLY CRAP! So much better!! NOT FOR BEGINNERS in 3D mode! Waaaay more authority, waaaaay more pop, way more power, much crisper, and so much more capable of 3d stuff. Also much easier to see in the air with the dark colored blades. Floatiness is about the same as stock blades. But MAN what a DIFFERENCE in performance! The motor handled it no problem, and zero tail issues, and tail motor did not get hot. I love these 245's. It feels as if I increased head speed by 20%.

The ONLY downside to them is I was flying in 10-15mph occasional winds, and the wind does shove it a little harder now. But that's to be expected.

I also proved them to be pretty durable haha. With the extra power, I went to do some tic-tocs, which it did much much better, but more than I expected and I started to lose orientation right as a wind gust came in and blew it around a bit. In my attempt to regain orientation and bring it back closer, I trimmed a few trees. There's not even a single blemish on either of the blades.

It's official, I'll never fly my 230s with anything other than these 245's anymore unless I'm just flying mild scale to practice orientations or simple maneuvers. It's a whole new bird!!

Now do like I did with my V1 and stretch it a tiny bit and give 255's a try (Or just try them without as they will work. I'm using Zeal 255 and Lynx 255 plastic)

Yes. I did not get a longer tail boom, and there was not any contact even with very hard inverted punchouts. No tail authority issues either.
As I mentioned above though, I did have to sand the roots a little to fit my blade grips nicely, as they were a bit tighter than fitment with stock blades.
Also, the picture only shows the bottom of the blades. The top has the typical white stripes and "BLADE" logo

They seem to be much more available in Europe where he is. Most all of them in the US are bought up. I found several UK vendors that have them in stock online.
