Well I just installed some Switch 523mm blades. Nothing else I have tried so far has compared to the Gaui 520mm blades at the same RPM. But these look promising. They probably aren't wood core like the Gaui blades. But they have a wider chord than any of my other blades so far. So hopefully they will bite just about as good.

The Switch blades worked out beautifully. I also realized my red dampers were quite sloppy even though they were new when I installed them in the new Formula rotor head not all that long ago. I can't be sure if they are just wearing out faster or if I am just noticing the wear more now with the higher precision on the formula head. Maybe it's just because it's summer time and my X5 stays in my car a lot. But either way changing them out brought the dull response on the cyclic back to life and I was able to turn down the pitch boost a lot as well. Next time I think I'll try the 85 hardness, blue dampers instead of the 95 hardness red ones. Maybe they'll last a bit longer and not be too much softer (not that the hardness matters if the hard ones wear out, right?). I also bought a set of the B Grade finish Spin blades. They are 525mm and honestly the only blemishes I see are some bubbles in the CF finish, and only in the very few places you can even see the CF though the paint. It's only on one of the two blades as well. I haven't tried flying them yet. I don't know if I'll just give them a try or wait till I crash. But they seem like good blades so far.


Also, I decided to bite the bullet and get the CF tail boom cover for my X5. If I'm being honest, I'm a lot more impressed with the one on the X7.

Most of these were from when I was testing 12S with 550-610mm blades.
