T-Rex blades on Shogun??

I read on some forum somewhere that you could use Shogun blades on the T-Rex. Read somewhere else that the T-Rex blades are more durable than the Shogun too.
Why can't you use T-Rex blades on the Shogun?

Prices at Modefosheli.com:

T-Rex main blades $13.80
Shogun main blades $23.99

Just a thought.

James,
Yes you could easily mount the Trex blades on a Shogun. The Trex blades are: more flexible(like corona blades) that's what lets them take a beating. However two negatives are that the blades weigh almost 2x the Shogun's blades and because they flex the disc(rotor) is not as rigid. Now the rigidity may not be an issue for you if you are not into aerobatics/3D, so if you are just hovering and sport flying give 'em a try. One last thing to keep in mind is the motor temp. The added load on the drive train(due to the increased weight of the blades) will put a higher strain on your motor. Make sure you use a heatsink on the motor and I would check the temp a few time during the first couple of flights. I hope this helps!

Regards,
Anthony

Dont get the ABS Trex blades, get a set of the 315mm woodies. They are half the weight of the ABS blades plus increased rotor disk.

Thanks everyone.
I had no idea they were so flexible.
Didn't see the T-Rex woodies. Are they better / as good as / worse than the Like90 blades?
Thanks again

Saw some of the woodies today for the rex. I really liked them but not read much about the flying qualities yet.
