Blade Buddies™ — protect your main blades when you're traveling with them on the heli.
With a nominal length of 710mm and a nominal width of 78mm, Blade Buddies Model BB-700 fits most any 700 size main rotor blade, even wide chord blades like the VTX models. The table below shows several popular 700 class main blades. The column labeled Var+/- indicates the amount of excess length you can expect on blades shorter than 710mm as well as the amount of blade root (near the blade grip) that will remain exposed on blades longer than 710mm (but because Blade Buddies are made from stretchy neoprene, they will actually cover any blade in the list below). As you can see, the 711mm length does a good job of protecting just about any size 700 class main blade.
Blade Buddies are made from 3mm nylon covered neoprene (wet suit fabric) and have Lycra edging and a hook and loop closure.
