Default V-Blades or Radix??

Hi

Can someone please tell me which blade performs better... they are for 3D with a Raptor 90SE.

I know the V's have a wooden core but does anyone know whats inside a Radix??

Thanks,
Ross

They are both excellent blades you can't go wrong with either one.

I'm not bothered about looks, I want a very good performing blade.
I think the V's are more popular with the famous heli guys, does anyone know why?

Thanks for the replies.

Radix blades just came out.

Unless you're top of the class I doubt you will be able to tell the difference, I know I can't.

They are both the same price, which would you go for personally?

Thanks,

I tend to agree
I think I will get them then. Which size is best for a 90 heli, 690mm or 710mm? I was thinking 690mm because we are not at sea level and apparently 710mm overload the engine. Is this right?

Thanks

I've been around both & from what little I gathered the V's seem to be very "aggressive" as in using a little less pitch to get off the ground and seem to pull a little harder on packs when used on electrics. The Radix were pretty aggressive as well but seemed to be easer on the electrics.
I have V's on my M.A. Fury & love them!

Unfortunately I coludn't get the V's as I couldn't get the right root size and all the Radix blades were out of stock!!

I ended up getting some TT 710mm Carbon blades, I've heard good things about these blades and at least I know they are compaytible with the 90SE.

Thanks for the reply, I might get some V'S for the 90STD when I get one
