Default i put larger blades on my furball

All my helis have nick names i settled on furball for this one. I wanted the yellow mini comet real bad but wound up with this one ( i thought it came with servos lol) costs the same as the comet. anyway I personally love it and im not woried about the high head speed. I set my pitch to 13 degrees and at 55 percent esc output it does 3d real well i am using it also for a practice machine for speed.
On a special note i noticed a lot of complaints about the weight and heavy feel and i suggested using a wider blade. the blades on my 800 dfc are 75 mm a bit wider then my now retired 700e. and the 800 flies super light.. I noticed the blades from my walkera vd450d03 were 320 x 30mm. 5 mm wider then the stock blades but the mounting hole is slightly larger. I was going to cut them down to 280 and re balance and i probably will but i noticed how light it felt right away I only flew at 55 percent head speed and i bumped it up to 60 a couple of times. If im not hallucinating i did an 8 min flight at 55% esc output on my vbar radio the motor came back at just a bit over 100 degrees. Im not sure of the current drw I wish this thing had a castle esc in it with logging then i could find out unless this esc has logging and i just need an adapter to go to my laptop in that case can i use the one from my castle esc. i have the red competition. tomorrow i will do 2 flights then switch back to the stock blades. i like flying this little heli at high head speed.

By the way im not responsable if anyone else ties this and has less fortune then i did
