Sand the leading edges down a little, should help with pitchiness and make sure they are level

mine were bad on my 30 . I did not sand them but I rechecked to make sure they were level with each other and there arms after that no more pitchiness. Check to make sure they are perfectly level then fly if still pitchy sand em .

does your heli (not the blades) balance properly?

The leading edge is the edge goes cuts through the wind. The thick edge

If you haven't already a stainless flybar really seemed to help everything out also.

Balance

My heli is perfectly balanced and the paddles are on 0 both of them. It flies great with the stock paddles and as long as I fly slowly. I will try the rounded leading edges in a few minutes. I will post my findings when I get back.

Rounding the paddles seem to have done it for me. Flew the R50 today and had no problems

sharp edges on the leading edge, moulding line, needs rounding off slightly so it doesn't "bite" the air so much

is it related to the chances of airflow going over or under the paddle.

if the edge is smooth then there is less chance of "all" of the air going over either the topside or the bottom side than if the edge is sharp.
instablity would occur when the airflows are most out of balance.
hence a more stable paddle with a rounded edge.

sound simple enough ? or is there more to it.

Sounds about right to me. I've got 2 sets of MA 20 gramme paddles here and there is a moulding line round the edge and the leading edge is pretty pitted and rough. Not perfectley smooth at all.
