i just ordered 700 size ones for my blackhawk for extra lift and a more scale look because the 600 disk looks too small. even with the 700 size blades on the 600 size blackhawk i will have 8cm of clearance between the main and tail rotor blades.
I also ordered a set of 5 for my hughes. cant wait!
I had an accident with my apache the other day(lost my orientation because i was standing on a hill looking down onto her whilst doing stationary pirouettes, slammes her down hard, and did some damage to air intake and tail boom, broke a ball link in one of my phase arms, and bent my main shaft. $75usd from tf models to replace all the fudelage parts. i will need to drill out the broken thread from the ball link and re-tap it. hopefully the feathering shaft isnt bent. ill know soon enough.
ZERO DAMAGE to my spinblades blade that struck the tail and intake. thats kevlar for you. Lucky!
sorry to hear about the mishap. No, my spinblades have not arrived yet. Last time I ordered stuff from Germany to the US it took about 10-14 days give it or take a day or two.
Need pictures of the Blackhawk with those blades.
You could order a replacement head form these guys. This is the same head for $99.00 plus shipping. You can get the head but they don't have spare parts for it yet.
