CX2 carbon fiber blades???
 
Hello
This my first of probably many posts to this forum.

My CX2 should be here next week and I have already ordered most of the aluminum upgrades except for the blade clamps. My question is , are there carbon fiber blades available or is there any other alternative to stock blades?

Also what would be a better option for blades clamps? I've read that the cnc one's have adverse affects on flight performance

Do not I say do not buy Micro heli blade grips.I have as set of upper and lower ones and i couldn't get my cx to fly to save my soul.If anyone want them they are for sale cheap.I do have the Eflite lower rotor head and the swash plate.The blade grips might work for someone who can trim it out better than I can.

Not that I am aware of. There is a fellow in Canada making CF blade for the XRB

They were close to $50 for a set, a bit expensive.

Hey good work, I'd love to get the xtreme blades onto my CX2. Did you need to replace any other parts to get those grips to fit or is it just a simple swap-over? :)

the micro heli lower blade grip is a direct replacement on the upper vortex grips u will need two small washers on the upper hub to fill the gap and a vortex flybar are the small balllink for the flybar and u are good to go, good luck :D
