Hi,

Jose,

They are semi-symmetrical. And cost €175 ex shipping for a four blades set as you already have seen.
It will put me down for a €190,- incl shipping.
But they looks promising maybe for the Black-hawk in the future.

Jan,

Hi rotorheads,

I ad some more details to the Apache,

The gun has now the ammo belt added,



Made of cone shaped pieces of balsa wood.

And I painted the main rotor head brown and sealed it with mat paint to fix the paint,
because I flow her without the sealer and the brown paint was blowing off the rotor head now its ok





And the tail rotor also,



Did some paintwork on the helfire units,


Note, the blue dots are red now.

Ad the two radar jamming devices at the rear of the tail, made of two leds.



Its no big deal but looks nice all the little details together,

And more to come,

Regards,

Jan,

I use the TF blades from Kin and they do not wobble in forward flight but you have to stay below 1300 rpm, then no problem

Jan,
My MD500 600 size does not do well below 1400, it looses tail authority as it only has two blades on the tail and I already have 700 size tail blades on it. I will wait and see with the spinblades...

Thanks guys,

My buddy told me to take the photo's at a other angle and to take care about the background (buildings far away etc) and it turns out well.
