Hi guys I'm back to show you what I've been doing on my heli. I have managed to fit the larger 8008 blades. But it took a bit of work, cos I didn't want to remove any material from the blade roots (except for rounding them off at the holes to the same size as the old blades), so I had to make Alum shims to the top and bottom plus 2 square spacers in the middle of the blade holders, so the gap would be larger, and the blades would then be able to slide right in. Plus the blade holders are a lot stronger now.
I used 2.5mm screws to bolt the blade holders together with nut's and there is now a brass bushing pressed into each of the blade root holes, and a 6mm screw and nut fits the blades to the blade holder. Now the heli looks a heck lot better with larger rotor blades than the smaller 8006 ones. The tail motor is a n60 with a 8008 tail blade. But I still have to come up with some kind of current limiter so the tail transistors won't burn out, as for them. I have soldered in four connecters and the tail transistors plug in to the board now, so if they burn up, I can easily replace them (I've done that mod to all my receiver boards)...
