XP review on MyRCguides.com
excels at hovering and very slow speed stability and is
designed to help beginners learn how to fly and
encourage them to stay with the hobby. They are
not designed for fast forward flight (FFF). SuperBlades XP
is for intermediate and advanced pilots and excels at
fast flight, yet remains stable at hover. EZ has lots of
lift with stock motors and gears. XP has shallower pitch
(less lift) and works with most stock motors and gears.
If your FP helicopter has a 2S LiPo (7.4volts), and
if it's heavy, you may need a 12T
pinion with the stock motor, or a 3S LiPo battery. Normally
this only applies to older helicopter models.
you've learned to hover with SuperBlades EZ, flown some small,
slow circles and practiced nose-in hovering, you may want
faster forward speed but may not feel you're ready for the
agility of the XP model. SuperBlades are made to be modified.
On the bottom of the blades you'll see a 1mm wide line scored
into the trailing edge and the tip, at 2mm from those edges.
These lines can be used as visual guides. EZ's will
still be stable, but hands-off hovering may no longer be
possible. In the video below, about 2.5mm was trimmed from the
trailing edge and 6mm from the tips. How much you should trim
depends on your specific heli and what kind of performance you
want. If you're not comfortable trimming the trailing edge,
just trim the tips.
now come with high quality stickers for the graphics. These are
"peel and stick" (pre-cut) so you don't have to cut
them out of the sheet.
you have a choice of leaving your blades blank, or several ways to
suggest washing the blades and your hands with soapy water,
rinsing thoroughly, and drying. We also suggest wiping the blades
down with alcohol before applying the stickers.
you want to decorate your blades with our standard graphic, you
can use this diagram to help you line them up.
