Heli Blades

Has anyone tried 'Edge Rotorblades' on a 500 and 600? Any pros, cons etc?
I've been disappointed in the last pair of Align blades i bought for my 600N... the white gel finish is flaking off the leading edge (almost looks like they spun in a shower of rocks) and the 3GX ones that came in the 600E Pro kit had a very uneven finish along the edges of the seam that joings the two halves. The old Align blades where always flawless, but I cant say that for the last few I bought.
Yesterday I received a set of 425F blades for my 500 that I ordered from Rotorquest and even those dont look as nicely finished as the 425's I bought previously - Quality is certainly going downhill.... sad to see!

Re: Heli Blades

I've used Edge, Rotortech, CY, Mavrikk, SAB and Stealth blades. Some I like better than others but all better than the align ones.

Re: Heli Blades

Edge, Rotortechs, and CY blades are all the creme de la creme of blades. They all fly very well, and the finish is flawless on every set of any I've ever bought.
