Seem alright. I have a few flights on the ones I got yesterday. They needed to be balanced. No real positives or negatives to them so far except for visibility.

I ordered a set of yellow ones..should be here in a few days. I really like the way the stock bullets perform. Really the only reason I'm getting these is for the visability. Flying at the park is fun with this, but gets lost quickly

I agree. The bullet blades are the best option so far.

Definitely need to check the balance. I bought 2 sets. One was way out of balance the other was a little out of balance.

Default weight

Has anyone weighed them yet? My lynx blades for the mcpx where lighter than the standard stunt blades and someone posted that the lynx 130x blades were 3.1g, and the stock 130x blades are 3.3g. I also noticed the cg of the lynx blade on the mcpx is closer to the root. Less weight and a cg closer to the root should help with a little with bogging and add a little flight time.

Is that less than the stock non-bullet blades? I just ordered a set of these and the 130x main/tail blades. I liked them a lot on the mcpx.

Ok, so I got a set of the lynx main blades, they weren't terrible, but they weren't great either. No where near as responsive as stock and ridiculously fragile (especially in the cold) they remind me of the rrc tail prop for the mcpx. Even the tiniest of blade strikes will total them. Guess I will have to wait til kbdd comes out with something or blade releases colored versions of the stockers..

Give them a go, they may work better for you. Just beware of the cold, cause they get very brittle. I am running a bl setup, so stock performance may be different

OK, I'm running stock motor and have not gone BL yet. Do you remember what the outside temps were when you ran them? I try not to fly when it's less than 45-50 deg. F. I know those days are getting far and few in between.

I wonder if you send them back to Lynx what would they say?

The ridges will make the blades less durable than they otherwise would be.

I can also attest to this. The ridges seem to create weak points, almost like perforation. Hitting anything rigid causes them to split along the ridges on the trailing edge. I was able to pinch the cracks back together and it was still flyable though. Still, less durable than stock. This was in 70F degree weather. It doesn't get that cold here :-P

Well that's disappointing. I got a set just sitting on the workbench waiting to be put on. I was hoping for increased visibility. Guess it'll be a shortlived improvement.

At a glance, these ridges look like machining marks...

I agree just machining marks but could definitely work for the concepts mentioned
