Cyclone Rotor Blades feature a unique, optimized airfoil design that elevates R/C helicopter blade technology to the next level. Cyclone blades feature an aerodynamically optimized "tapered airfoil" that allows the CG point to be configured in a way that provides fast flight stability, without sacrificing response, or "crispness" around center. The tip shape is unique and allows large cyclic inputs even at the highest forward flight speeds, eliminating the "flutter" or sluggishness that is common with heavy flybarless blades that can stress servos and reduce cyclic rates. This also allows the power system to work more efficiently and lets the blades track with one another much better, even under the most extreme combinations of collective and cyclic pitch.
Cyclone blades are inherently stable, yet infinitely tunable! TodayÍs Flybarless blades are stable and smooth at high speeds, but deliver a slow response around center and are more demanding of your electronics. Traditional Flybar blades are very quick around center but often lack smoothness and stability in fast forward flight. Cyclone blades are specifically designed to be responsive off center, track well in fast flight, and be extremely stable. From the most wicked smack 3D to smooth and controlled sport flying, Cyclone blades can do it all!
Cyclone blades stray from the conventional straight-line "continuous airfoil" design, and feature a "tapered airfoil" design that provides stability in fast flight, without sacrificing response, or "crispness" around center. This design has been optimized and allows the blade to move through the air with less drag, less turbulence and improved predictability.
Cyclone blades feature a unique tapered, swept tip design that does two things; first, the swept tip deflects turbulent air coming off the blade tip at an angle away from the disc, and away from the next advancing blade. This allows the blade to slice through the air without having to fight the turbulent air generated by the retreating blade, and produces a quiet, more efficient blade, even under high cyclic pitch conditions! Second, it reduces the "mach number" at the tip, effectively reducing airspeed and drag without sacrificing lift. This increases the overall efficiency of the power and control systems.
This affects the lead/lag of the blades in flight. As the blade rotates through the air it creates drag, causing the blade to pivot rearward, or "lag" in the blade grip. The location of the pivot point is critical in allowing the blade to fly at its "aerodynamic center". Cyclone blades feature an optimized pivot point that helps to balance the blade dynamically, resulting in blade with superior aerodynamics, and improved in-flight stability.
