    I haven`t said anything about this on social media or any of the forums, but I have lost one of my sponsors. Not due to being let go, but because as of Jan 2019, they have shut down the factory.

    Zeal Blades is officially gone. I have to admit that I shed some tears over this, because I was with them from the very beginning and I truly believe in them.

    But they say that every time a door closes, another one opens. So as I announce the loss of a great sponsor, I also announce that I will be flying for KBDD International for the foreseeable future.

    I have been flying with KBDD blades on my machines for the past couple of months, and putting them through the wringer to make sure I liked them, and could honestly promote them.

    I was officially added to the team roster last night, and our team captain announced it today. I`m excited and saddened at the same time, but times change and nothing lasts forever.

    That really sucks about Zeal, but KBDD is an awesome brand. I have flown quite a few of their blades and the only ones that I didn't quite like was the plastic 600 tail blades. Not a quality issue, just didn't like them lol.

    That is awesome that you are flying for them though. Now you can keep killing blades in awesome fashion lol.

    Sorry to here that Geena but look at it from a different view. Zeal sponsor loss and KBDD sponsor gain. Just keep doing what you do best and make KBDD sponsor glad to have you on there team! Good luck and keep on flying :).

    Hahaha.. I don`t kill many of them anymore....knock on wood. They approached me back in January, when they heard about Zeal shutting down. I told them I couldn`t join them at that time, because I had never flown their blades at that point in time. I didn`t want to seem, or feel like a "discount hunter". Sooooo.... they sent me two sets of 690mm blades to try, and I have been quietly testing them for a while.

    Congratulation Geena, sorry to see Zeal go but life moves on, KDBB have been around for a long time, I used them on my smaller helicopter years ago when I started out.
    Haven't seen any of the larger ones available in Australia , only tail blades.
