Product Code: BB-700


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.

Blade Buddies are sold in singles so you can buy the number you need.

5 of 5 Awesome! April 19, 2021
Reviewer: Angel Rojas from Brandon, FL United States  
I had been using towels to protect the blades when I traveled but if I ever forgot to take a towel, I'd end up with damaged blades as the helicopters shifted or rubbed against each other while driving. The sleeves fit well and my Miniature Aircraft blade holders accommodate them perfectly. Now, my blades are all safe from scratches or chips and I'm not worried about them being damaged!

5 of 5 Blade buddies April 3, 2021
Reviewer: Geena Tucker from Sebring, FL United States  
I was given a set of these by a friend at a helicopter even a few weeks ago. I was so impressed with the quality, look, and function. So I had to order a set for my other helicopter. These blade covers are very well made, and easy to use. They look great, and keep your blades safe from being dinged up in transport. They are well worth getting.

5 of 5 Nice Product! January 5, 2020
Reviewer: Ralph Geese from Farrell, PA United States  
I ordered a pair of these for my Align Black Shark on New Years Day and they arrived on the 4th. Great service! The sleeves themselves seem to be very well made and should last a long time. I'm very happy with them!
