SuperBlades EZ for Fixed Pitch helis
SuperBlades XP for Fixed Pitch helis
videos below show the stability of SuperBlades EZ and the
speed of XP. It's our belief that XP will outperform any
other FP blade currently available and are ideal for
intermediate and advanced pilots; and that EZ is so stable
it'll help beginners learn to fly FP helis and help to keep
them in this hobby.
size compared to 300/400
will fit all of our current 300/400 mounts and adapters,
will include adapters for the CX3, Lama4 and Universal mounts.

Coming soon. 2 new SuperBlades for 300 size FP helis, and
This video is a little long and boring, but the first 2 minutes
aren't bad. It's an indoor test of a prototype
SuperBlades EZ on a stock, fresh out of the box,
is a prototype SuperSkids200 on a Blade CX3. SS200 will be
similar to SuperSkids400 except narrower and not quite as
tall. All of our adapters and mounts will still fit
them, so they'll be interchangeable with our other landing
with SuperSkids400™ and most 400/450 size helis. Strengthens the
frame of 400/450 helis like the T-rex, DF36, Blade400 and Belt CP
where the landing gear attaches. Adds 8mm ground clearance.
Stiffens SuperSkids400 suspension. Comes in pairs
and with hardware. See note.
Esky HBK2 and most 400/450 helis. Extended battery tray for a
better fit and easier mounting. Has our exclusive
non-slip Orange Pad™. These are made to work with
SuperSkids400, but will work with other landing gear by drilling a
couple holes. Includes rubber bands and hardware. These
are not for use with SuperSkids300 (SLG300) or SuperSkids3D
(ALG300) kits which already include a battery tray. Flexible,
to help protect the battery and frame. [Installation
& Parts list]
is 2 strips of the non-slip Orange Pad we use in our Super Battery
Tray. These are great to help hold batteries or servos in place,
and have many other uses for the DIY hobbyist. The strips are
about 1.4” x 8.9” and have a peel and stick adhesive back.
light, high aspect ratio, low drag, performance paddles for
FP helis with 2mm flybars. Great for the HoneyBee FP and Walkera
FP helis including the 4G1B, and many more. Their shape is much
more efficient than stock paddles and they really reduce the
rotating mass in the head for better performance. Makes these
small helis handle more like the larger ones. In stock
helis, they smooth the response and reduce control delays. In “hot”
setups, they give you the aggressive control you need. Contains 1
pair and hardware.
The weight advantage of SuperPaddles isn’t just that they reduce
the weight of your heli by ~7 grams, it’s where they reduce the
weight. Because they’re attached to the head, they reduce the
rotating mass which means longer flight times, quicker cyclic
response, and faster spin up (acceleration).
carbon fiber rod, 165mm. These flybar rods are stronger and bend
less than stock flybars on FP helis. Stiffer flybars mean
more positive control. They're 5mm shorter than most stock flybars
and work great with SuperPaddles or stock paddles. We made them
5mm shorter than stock flybars because we felt the stiffer rod
made response too aggressive for most pilots when used with the
very light SuperPaddles.

working on SuperBlades. Here's a clip from a test video showing
prototype SuperBlades and SuperPaddles.
8 days before Christmas, Santa Claus was testing his sleigh for
the big night when he made a hard landing on a rooftop and broke
the runners on his sleigh. The Jolly Old Elf commented that his
sack of gifts gets heavier each year while his sleigh gets older.
"I was fighting a losing battle." said Santa. "My
route is longer, my sleigh is heavier and the jackrabbit starts
and stops on the rooftops were taking their toll. To be honest,
this isn't the first time I've broken a runner. I was afraid that,
for the first time, I'd have to cancel my annual flight. Something
had to be done, so I contacted the team at SuperSkids."
SuperSkids spokesman had this to say. "You know, we've always
liked the spirit of Christmas, so when Santa came to us with his
problem, we were happy to help. We outfitted Santa's sleigh with a
new set of SuperSkids and were quite pleased with the
assures us that, with his new SuperSkids, he should be able to
deliver his presents in record time this Christmas Eve. "With
Rudolph's shiny nose and SuperSkids, I think I'm prepared for
anything." he said. Happy flying, Santa!
wants to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.
