curtis youngblood 325mm blades are awesome

wow, i just flew my first set of curtis youngblood blades, 325mm.

ive heard roomers that these blades aren't the greatest. i would argue these are the best flying blades ive ever flown.

they autorotate very well.

blade attributes:

its a thin blade, probably the most thin blade on the market, its all got a thin airfoil profile. they are stiff but has just enough give.

thus, when flying, the things i immediately noticed were efficiency during hard collective moves, they are predictable blades (not that others arent), everything is very linear (not that others aren't), and they are light and the profile makes them able to penatrate the air very well.

they are a 10/10 blade IMO

and for $45 well worth it

ill post a video

I wish I lived in SC... I need a heli club.

I have heli-crack, and no one to share it with

Jason, you've got it bad man... you need therapy.

I'm gonna have to try those blades... got a link where I can get some?
