All are great, I went with EDGE. The mostly black blades I just don't care for.

I went with edge also on my 450, but i have some radix on my 500 and they're really good , i thought visibility would be bad on the Radix cause they're mostly black but they're pretty visible.
Both tracked perfectly and balanced right out of the box. Have used aligns also and they're good too specially since they're quite a bit less money but the finish was'nt as nice as the edge or radix.

1 vs. 2 is FBL to FB
3 with the VST looks like a new design of the FBL #1

3 vs. 4 is FB to FBL
5 is FBL

All are Carbon Fiber high quality blades.

So rule out the FB vs. FBL depending on what you want
Here's another picture of persuasion

The edge blades are very pretty hehe. Has the best looks out of all the blades, Man I wish I can find YELLOW blades I love yellow.

I wonder what is the difference with vst other than it's the "new" version.

I really want Mavericks but I dont find anyone selling in Canada....

Where do u guys buy your maverick blades?

I am FBL, would it screw things up if I used FB blades? I'm curious about the cheap hobbyking ones and idk if they have "FBL Blades".

You can toss any blades you want on, granted depending on your FBL unit settings FB blades will give different reactions.

If your FBL, then I personally haven't seen a benefit of putting anything less than FBL blades. Just remember what "cheap" typically stands for.

Don't let a good price point be the failure of a high headspeed pricy Helicopter.
Just my opinion of course & you'll get many along the way

Cheapest FBL blades I have put on were the Align 3G's
The difference in stability/predictable control (& I'm no advanced pilot) wasn't a tough decision for me to drop the lower end blades and just run with the EDGE blades as they have been great on all my helicopters
