Yes,
But due to the nature of a rotor disc there will always be some form of cone. But if you have a model of the PCA-2 or the like I just dont think it would look scale without cone and in these cases trimming would be needed.I have got my C30 kit out and had a look at the head and blades, with mine there is very little flap up but I think there is enough. The blades are very flexible to what I have used before.
As Chris has stated the blades are very thin compared to others, I think I will assemble mine on to the rotor hub and take them up to the field this afternoon. I'm interested to see what kind of lift I will get as Chris's seemed not to provide the lift he expected.

Regards Rich

Update:
I have been up to the field this afternoon and held the mast assembly along with the blades fitted into the brisk cold wind. Mine spin up quick and I have plenty of pull but I have either an out of balance rotor system or a tracking problem.
