You forgot the V-Paddles.

I have found that V-Paddles are best for the Raptor 60/90.
And MS white are best for the R50.

V paddles here also, too sluggish on the roll but I havn't flown it since I moved the weights in and turned up the ATV.

Bent T, are you using weghts?
What servo arm length and ATV's on the roll?

I started with weights and got rid of them after a few weeks. If you use the weights are about the same as stock paddles.

I am using a Futaba 8U Transmitter, S9252 servos, 12mm arm length, and 90% ATV.

If you have a JR transmitter the ATV will have to be higher as 100% on Futaba is equivalent to 120% or so on a JR.

Thanks,

Yes, I am using JR 8103 and started out with V-paddles, weights about 1/2 way out on the flybar and 100% ATV on the roll, that would explain the sluggish roll rate.

I will try loose the weights and start with an ATV of about 100% and go from there, I was told I would need flybar weights with the V-paddles so I added them right away, must not be true for the Raptors.

They are needed on the Fury with the V-paddles tho.

I don't know the radius of the servo arm, I used whatever the plans call for.

Thanks again Bent T

I went from the stock Raptor 60 paddles to the 90mm V paddles without weights. And although the cyclic response did increase noticeably I didn't see the need for flybar weights as the response remained very smooth and predicable.
