Curved Offset T Blades

Have done a run of Curved, Offset, T blades for any DLG

:UPDATE: I now make the one type of blade, it is a lot lighter and has less material, and have managed a way to get heaps of excess resin out. THey are super strong! I tried really hard to break one the other day and couldn't!



Rough un-shaped blank $15USD

Shipping outside NZ is: $10USD (10 working days)

Australia $6USD

FREE SHIPPING WITHIN NZ

Free shipping on orders of four or more



I do PayPal and will send anywhere.


PM me with your order and Address so I don't waste time getting them shipped to you

Nice one Alex.
This is how my Windburners started, I was selling them so my hobby was self-funded.

This is the light batch, as you can see they are alot thinner. They come out at 2.7grams for the rough blank.

The blade for your index finger is a bit thinner than I planned, but this is usually the blade that takes the least load and being on top of the wing, it shouldn't take any impacts on landings (unless you land upside down)

I wouldn't recommend these for a heavy model or a heavily ballasted model, but they are alot lighter than the standard lay-up. Would be great fo 240-270g airframes. Again, these are un-tested and I can't guarantee them, but will send new solid ones to anyone that breaks one on launch, free of charge.

I have done another batch of the standard lay-up which I am about to cut out as well.

Please specify which blades you want when ordering

I got mine and they are just as pictured. I am sanding on one now and will put it to use soon. They feel good and the quality is good.
Thanks oldrifter

Hi Alex,

Got mine yesterday. Very nice. The offset amount seems just right for my fingers. Thanks again,

Somebody please install and test one already. Enough talk about making, ordering, receiving, and admiring. Let's hear how they feel and perform on planes.
