I have only received them days ago, but I can tell you confidently from the testing that I've put them through, they are tough!
They weigh the same as stock but are a slimmer profile, and are excellent for acro, my flips are a lot faster (doubles are a breeze, triples are now doable), the controls are much more crisp, and the throttle is even more responsive!
They have a 4.3" pitch (more aggressive than stock), are 5.4" long (same as stock), and they are available in White, Black, Orange, and Grey.
This is the only source I can find right now. GWS EP5443/EP5443R
If anyone knows of other sources please chime in!
Nice find! By measuring and calculating, I estimate the stock pitch at ~1.5 inch.
From the pictures, the GWS ones look especially narrow near the tips (where the most lift and drag occur).
The stock ones have a lot of undercamber. I am guessing the GWS ones have less (closer to a flat blade)?
I am wondering how flexible, durable and flight time the GWS ones are compared to stock?
