Yah I was going to buy those but they were not in stock.

Is you Bee stock?

I put Super skids on mine but the rest of it is stock. So I really need all the lift I can get.

Flagmax, for the most part it is stock. All I've done is installed the HBCP battery holder and the HB King II canopy to move the battery forward for perfect nose/tail balance, and of course the C/F blades. Last night with no wind it was as stable as it could be hovering for the most part. :bigthumb:

Happy flying and even better landings flyaway

Just got an e-mail responce from Heli-World and they said that these carbon fiber blades have been discontinued orange4, waiting on another e-mail reply as to what will be replacing them and how soon.

That's ashame. Was hopping to get those exact blades.

On side note I just tried carbon fiber blades on my Belt CP v2 and boy it flies smooth. Way better than original blades and other no name wood blades I have used. I hope to see this kind of improvement for my Honey Bee v1 once I get some carbon fiber blades for it.

Well I received these blades today and what a disappointment. First of all they were too tihgt when i put them on even without the screws. I had to inlarge the holes a little with a file. They are also 17mm shorter than stock blades. Same pitch. At full throttle the Bee lifts about 6 inches. I highly DO NOT recommend them.

P.S, They did come perfectly balanced at 10.89 grams each.

EDIT- I have changed my opinion about these blades. The reason I had problems with lift turned out to be a bad main motor . Once I changed the motor here are my findings. It seems these blades have somewhat less lift than stock because they are shorter but they spin faster which is better against wind and the heli seems more responsive. They do produce enough lift for flying. They came perfectly balanced and track really well. They only bad thing about these blades is I had to inlarge the holes a little. Other than that they are not bad if your motor is good and your Bee is stock. I want to try some real Carbon fiber blades next and maybe Wood 9/10 degrees.

So you decide, nice look, good balance, good tracking, better response trade off is little less lift.

Ok I just ordered the Walkera 4# checker pattern with red strips blades http://www.helipal.com/hm-4--z-09-main-rotor-blade.html

Once they come (6 to 15 days) I will report back what I think of them compared to stock.
