The blades came balanced and they track well on TT E550S FBL. Very happy with them so far and for the price, can't beat them.

Reviewer:Jeff   
First set was ok in a plastic head. Second set I used in a metal head and they would hardly fit in the grip. Such a tight fit I couldn't get them to fold up....... So gotta make sure they are perfectly straight when flying because will not straighten themselves during spool up due to being so tight. Also had to add ALOT of tape to one blade to get them to balance...... Have not flown that set yet, kinda nervous about it really. Not sure if I want to try it in a new heli..... Anyone want to buy a set of blades????

I use these on my Gaui 550. If all you do are circuits, loops and rolls then there is no need to spend $50 or more for a set of carbon blades. Like others have said they won't fold back, but sand the root and they will.

Reviewer:Terry    
Just learning to fly. Ordered these after wrecking a $60 pair of carbon fiber ones. Did get a bad set but good replacement. First set had not been properly tip balanced at the factory.( I couldn't easily set a cg or static/dynamic balance). This set up horrible oscillations in flight. Took the blades off, called helidirect. They quickly set another replacment set. Second set was perfectly balanced. (the factory installed weight in the underside of one blade). Blades are tracking well and are as good as my cf blades were (basic hovering, simple forward flight). I plan to buy a second set when I put together a crash kit.

Finally turned in my woodies and these are perfect and a great upgrade. Balanced and CGd out of the box. They fold fine on my Hawk and they auto nice and predictable with these blades. A great deal at this price!!

These are OK blades. They won't fold back but you can easily sand the root to get them to. They will tear up your head if you crash though so....

Reviewer:Kenneth   
Update:  Stock Gaui 550 Plastic Frame_br /__br /_These are 80+ grams heavier and 2mm thicker cord than compared to my Gaui 500mm woodies...very floaty but are also amp hogs at 350 to 400mah per minute depending what your middle TC number are.  Test on 100-85-85-85-100, 100-90-90-90-100 and 100-92-92-92-100...the extra 2mm thicker cord may be why these use more amprage...but if you don't fly longer than 4-5 minutes they are much better than the stock 500mm wood blades!

Reviewer:Kenneth   
Got two pairs of these for my Gaui 550....one was 15 grams lighter than the other set but within 1/2 gram of each other...were easy to balance out...will take much longer to spin down compared to the 500mm lite wood gaui blades.  Blades would not fould back, but with just a little filing on the back edge it will clear the blade holder bolt and allow the blades to fold.  Just hovering at this time...but feel alot more floatie :D

Just a minor quibble: the roots are too long, so you can't fold them back for transport/storage.

Reviewer:Mario   
Diese Blades sind für diesen preis absolut fantastisch,ich fliege sie seid september 2009.blattbreite 50mm ist ziemlich heftig für hartes 3D.diese blätter haben ein ausgewogenes Schlagverhalten und fliegen super präziese bei einer kopfdrehzahl von 2600 upm.nachteilig ist die blattdicke wodurch der luft wiederstand der blätter sehr hoch ist und die flugzeit zu cf blättern ca. 3min kürzer ist. grüsse aus der schweiz

These blades are very hard to beat for the price. I've bought a 2 pairs for my Outrage 550 and so far they've held up. They balance and track very well without any problems. Not as precise as carbon blades but if you're flying abilities dont call for it, then these blades are for you.

Reviewer:Ronald   
These blades are not good for beginners, first thing is that break real easy, I had landed in a batch of ferns just on the edge and one blade broke off immediately, and the second crack about 1/3 from the top. also blade are very snappy but quite compared to wooded symmetrical 600mm. do forget these are 550mm!

Reviewer:robert   
These are great blades for the money. They come balanced and have a brass insert in the bolt hole. I removed one and the glass in the area of the insert appears to be solid so there shouldn't be any worry about the hole enlarging. The weight is about 120 grams per blade. they are very smooth in the air. Bob
