I`ve seen one person fly the V-paddles on his R50 and one on his Evo 50 and they seemed quite fast but absolutely not a hint of pitching up or down....

I would like to hear some more "user"-experiences before I order a set

So if you use them and like them, or hate them or find them too slow... feel free to post!

Cheers,

Rich

I don't know about the V-paddles, but I put a set of 20g white MA paddles on the 50v2, along with the 80 durameter dampers (red), and it's a completely different bird.
I have read on here that the V-paddles are nice as well, but for $10 from Rick's, the MA's are really smooth & quick.

Read this as well:

I'm using a set on my Raptor 50. They work very well (better than the MA, TT or KSJ paddles). Go for it!

Raptor Rulezzz,

That looks really good. But, damn I would cry if I put that into the dirt. I hope you have a cheapie to bang around on, or you are that good.

Richard,

You saw me flying my R50 with V-paddles a few weeks ago at MVSB.
I'm very happy with those paddles, they don't seem to be pitchy in windy conditions or in FFF.

John has the white MA paddles on his R50. He tried my heli ones and he said that the MA paddles are a little more agressive, but less stable (especially in hover flights).

And the look very nice too!

Regards,
Bas.

@Bas

I know it was you and I already talked to John about the paddles but I just wanted to hear more about them from others..... Sorry to hear about your crash, are you back in the air yet??
I hope you have a cheapie to bang around on, or you are that good.
Never like to say it but... I`m that good Atleast more than good enough to fly it like I stole it and never crash it... still learning new stuff though... every week a new manouvre! Last one was a backwards rolling circle & traveling flips (@10 feet). Only crashes I ever had were technical problems....

Keep the comment coming!!

Cheers,

Rich

Hi Richard,

I ordered 2 sets of V-paddles for my Rap50's and 2 sets for my 90's but they still havent arrived

I tried the Ma Paddles but i didnt liked the fact that the stability was gone a"little"
I read/heard that the V-paddles are more stable.

Nope not yet

It is half way rebuilded. Need to wait until the engine arrives from cyberheli. Have ordered a OS50 Evo with 60K carb.
The crash resulted in a full running engine because the throttle connector came of the receiver....the engine is RIP

The crappy this is, it will be beautiful weather this weekend and i don't have any thing to fly. I really need to get a second heli
Never like to say it but... I`m that good
Never say that too loud, or you may end up like me this weekend

See you,

Bas.

V paddles are great but you should invest in the all metal wash out. It's the first thing to go.

Because when the washout starts to wear out, the paddles become less effective. If you put V-paddles on with a worn out washout hub, it may be no better then other paddles with a new washout.

Just looking at his set up he has all the bling in the world except for the washout. V-Paddles are $30 and a washout is $60. The investment in the washout would be a better investment now and then the paddles later. Nothing worse than a worn washout. Except an untuned engine inverted near the deck.

Thanks Alexander (Colin)! He should have looked better as I have the metal washout from Geoffry Woodward (the extended one) which is WAY better than anything you can get nowadays!!

And I`ve got pins&clips on both elevator and washout arms, so I`m never going to experience the ow-f*ck-my-washout-pins-are-gone-syndrom

Anyway, I think I`m going to order myself a set along with some Carbon Xtreme dampners as soon as there available.

Cheers,

Rich

What did You had to drink (or smoke) before you made that reply

We we`re talking about V-Paddles , but I do agree the TT blades work just fine
