I've ran Torsion mains before and they are alright but not great, especially once you go FBL.

I was most interested about the tails because I can't seem to find 95mm night blades anywhere. They're all out of stock ... Where'd ya get yours?

Wow, $55 USD ... cheaper than I've seen them anywhere else. But I bet shipping will kill me.

Do you like the blades? Any more details about how they work? Are they the usual pin style like the mains?

Edit: Holy CRAP ... $100+ for shipping.

Here is my 2nd night light heli and with my 1st pair of DIY night blades - works great.
there are only 3 led on each blade red on top of one blade and blue on bottom of the other blade. At close to 3K rpm, you can't see the difference if both blades has symmetrical lights on each side. Weight and CG are perfectly matched.

EXI CF SE V2
Tpro mg90 clyclic
md922 tail
gy48v gyro
Tpro 40A ESC
Turnigy 40V SBEC
Turnigy X9 Tx and 8ch Rx




pics shows how the blades are made (not very neat, this is my 1st DIY pair ever made), main circuits are made of conductive copper tape directly taped on the circuit of led strip modified from HK led strip. The led were 3 in series, converted to 3 in parallel. use a jumper to short / complete + circuit wire to turn on the light. the 3rd pin is a (-) lead for charging.
cost of blades: CF blade 6.50/pair, 130 mah 1S lipo 0.99 x 2, leds and copper tape less than 1.00

the last pic shows the heli led before the night light blades and floats were put on there.

Just as a note usually we don't delete posts unless it's porn or spam, but duplicates sometimes also apply.

The blades are about 30 grams heavier, the need maybe a bit more power. I have nothing further found. So yes you do even basic aerobatics to see the images.

That's all homemade. I can not find a blade manufacturer

There are mono color from
