Default RDLohr's TREX 450 Night Fins with Slotted Text

RDLohr’s Clearly Superior Products
TREX 450 Night Fins w/Slotted Text (1 Horizontal and 1 Vertical)
Make it easy to see the orientation of your night heli with these high quality Lexan fins specially designed to make the most of cold light strings. (Light strings and mounting hardware not included)





Thread the light string through the hole from back to front. Leave plenty of slack to inlay the string. Start inlaying the string into the slot placing the end next to the hole, and then progressively press into the slot ending up back by the hole. Pull the excess string through the hole. Use the handle of a screw driver on a hard surface to gently press in string on corners. Use tiny drops of glue in slot to secure if necessary. Use TREX screw bling or a washer when installing to avoid stressing holes. Use loc-tite and just snug up screws. Over tightening will damage fins.

Note: Drill additional 3/32” holes in slot if desired.
Note: A belt sander with 120 grit paper can be used to touch up burnishing if necessary

Please expect a week or two of delay. I'm a bit backed up on these and they take a lot of mill time to produce. I'll get product out in the order that I receive requests.

If you want the embedded text version, go ahead and order them. They are the same price.

My web site may not have either set on it yet. Just mention in your email that you want TREX 450 Night Fins w/Slotted Text, or TREX 450 Night Fins w/Embedded Text.

Thanks,
Rick

Sure. Here you go.

They won't be up on the web site until after IRCHA, but just tell me what you want and I'll try to get them out before I leave.

Glad you like em. Yes the burnishing disperses the light.
They are not on the web site yet. The original version on the web site is $22.50 but they don't have the slot for the light string.

The version with the light string slot (that I just posted) is $25.50 shipped.

Can't help you on the blades. I got Align but many people have had problems with them.

You can use any length light string. The fins really don't use much. Most of your string will be wrapped around your boom. You can cut them if you follow a special procedure. Its posted on the night forum.
