Default Fitting carbon blades

I was just wondering if you need to balance carbon blades before fitting them to a rappy 30. Or is there anything else I need to change on the heli.

No, Carbon Blades are made as a matched pair, so balancing is not necessary. Just bolt them on and fly. You may need to adjust throttle & pitch curves slightly, as the carbon blades are more efficient than woodies, so you may have a slightly higher headspeed the first time you fly with them (this can vary from make to make so try it as it is first). You will definitely notice a difference in how the machine handles. Much smoother at aerobatics/3D and FFF.

Bolt them up and fly. They are probably more efficent than the wood blades so your head speed will be higher, you can bump up the pitch a few percent or drop the throttle curves a few percent. Other than that, enjoy!
