The stock tail rotors on the Blade 230S, 200SRX, 250CFX have a deserved reputation for being quite fragile. Some RC Groups members are having positive results using Tri-Blade Props intended for FPV micro quads. Specifically, a 3045 (3.0” Dia x 4.5” Pitch) closely matches the size and thrust of the Blade OEM tail rotor. However, most have a 5mm mounting hole. This then requires a separate shaft reducer along with a backing washer for mounting onto the heli's tail rotor adapter.

Here’s another option I found easier and wanted to share. DYS Model Co makes a special version of the 3045 with a T-Type hub design. As pictured below, this version has 3 small holes versus the traditional single 5mm hole. Note that the ‘S’ suffix in the part number denotes the T-Type option. These props are cheap to purchase and offered in a myriad of colors. I got mine from the retailer My RC Mart.



Here are the steps to modify the T-Type prop for Blade helis:

1) Select the Correct Prop
Quad props are sold in pairs for CW/CCW rotation. For the Blade helis, use the one with the ‘R’ suffix molded on the prop since it will have the correct AoA. TIP: It’s possible the other prop could be used if the tail motor wires were swapped for reverse rotation, but I haven't tested this.

2) Plug the Holes
To maintain structural integrity, first fill in the pair of M2 hub holes. I used short pieces of 2mm carbon rod. Dry fit first since you may...Continue Reading

Here is an interesting article on how drones of the future will be powered by gas/electric generators for hours of flight rather than minutes.

Tests of focus vs time revealed it did indeed get slightly sharper after 10 minutes.

Been wanting to try my hand at waterproofing a quad. I had an old tempest laying around and a lot of spare parts. Fall is coming up, the potential for great video footage at the lake is going to get here quickly. And why not I'll make it float as well. In theory haaa. We will see .

Bad day out flying, lost signal on the third pass of the field, it went to full throttle, turned towards me and the other people at the field, climbed out to around 300-350' flipped on its back and dove full speed at the ground, I missed one of the vehicles out there by about 3', and pieces were scattered around a hundred yards I found a wheel cap at the field gate, the tank looked like it had been hit by buckshot.

Recovered:
2 pushrods
1 clunk for a tank
Landing gear & wheels& hardware
2 wing bolts

The windshield can be cut away using a new small box cutter for the purpose of adding wood to tie the receiver floor area to the plastic motor mount area. My recommendations are 1/32" ply that's been sanded and scored to accept CA and the foam to get kicker. The winshied could be CA'd back in place.

Empennage is key cut aft of lights to access rudder and elevator servo relocation. Access is easier for installation of two elevator servos and relocated rudder servo. Key cut can be reglued or taped back in place for transport and storage box. Dowels and brass tubes can be used to mate the front and rear prior to taping with 3M 20 X tape.

Windows can be cut out but frame wood be needed to add strength.

the fountain of youth is a mythical dream that some have tried to discover. even Ponce de Leon searched for it at Florida.
still, there are ways to stretch life so it gets as close as possible to it.
like healthy food, excercise, positive attitude, not worrying, not doing things that may be dangerous or harmful...
and 1 of these is to have a hobby like ours, that keeps our mind busy. it also is creative, improves our reactions, we breath fresh air, so many positive things.
so, even if it is not the fountain of youth, is as close as it can be.
so, keep doing it.
(now you have an excuse to do it)

The Bugs 6 with FPV kit is available from HERE
Use the coupon: c80241 and get 25% OFF


The Bugs 6 (also called Bugs 8) is what MJX says it is an entry level racing quadcopter, a thing that I can only partially agree with and I will tell you why. The new Bugs 6 is a brushless 250mm class racing quadcopter with a twist, it uses just a "2S" LiPo battery, small 1806 motors and lacks acro mode, but here is where entry level ends and gets interesting as like the other "bugs" it does come with some really nice extras such as 2-way radio telemetry which will warn you about aircraft battery level and also signal strength. Beside this feature you also get a lost alarm and FPV camera modularity, you can opt for the MJX combo camera which will record 720p footage and also will output 5.8G FPV, or use the designated space to install your own system.


The build construction and design are also well thought and makes it easy to modify and service the quad, it only takes 2 seconds to pop out the top cover and have access to the internals. The propellers are also fixed on the motors with thumb friendly nuts makinging it very easy transport by taking the props off.
