VIBE NEX E8 with MB-351 Assembly Kit w/TAGS01
There are many advantages on JR Multiple Blade Rotor Head, and particularly notable points are :
The current RC helicopters have been controlled with 2 blades. But adding one more blade, the precision will be 1.5 time more, and naturally the controllability will be drastically improved, more smooth control could be possible.
More efficiency with less RPM
Probably you will have a image of increased rotational resistance by added one more main rotor blade, but keep less RPM makes the helicopter high efficiency, and offered higher fuel (battery) efficiency than 2 rotor blade type.
Very high motion performance
The burden to one blade will be reduced, and make it possible to control the helicopter effectively with less stick control, and as a result, improve the helicopter flying performance.
The above advantage may give you the image that multiple rotor blade head is specialized for 3D and sport flight, but it is very good for scale helicopter, too because it makes possible to feel stable, comfortable and natural flights, and also enable the linearly-extended flight.
