3 Blade Rotor Head - Further news !!



Here is some update information on the Multi Blade Rotor Head we will be releasing soon.

After we post some photos, we got many feedback from domestically and internationally.
The features of our multi rotor head are-,

Because there is no Flybar, every control is done by the main rotor. So, with 3 main blades, control speed gets quicker and you can have a more definite handling than when you have with two blades. With electric helicopters, you wouldn't need to worry about losing power.

Even when you lower the rotor RPM, it still has stability compare to two blade rotor head,and because response to small control is good,you feel pitch control easy.

You'll enjoy this multi rotor head not only for F3C flight but also for your 3D flight ! Combination of TAGS01,you'll have the best performance !!

We are also working on special main rotors for this multi rotor head.







 When you fold the rotors... We also need a special blade holder...
