Ok, This has been done alot on micros to increase the cyclic response. And it works really well on the Zoom.

I was able to lighten each paddle a total of 2 grams each( 4 grams total), and increase the flybar length by a total of 4mm from tip of paddle to tip.

While this does not sound like much, it makes a BIG difference. Definately noticable in flight.

Nice mod!! How does it compare with swapping the standard items wth Picollo paddles?

I did not like the idea that the pic paddles are only held on by a small screw pinching the paddle around the flybar. I have seen too many pic paddles get thrown off in flight. The Zoom paddles are not going anywhere.

Mod

Simpler mod is to change the paddles adaptors to the flybar from heavy metal to ligh alumnium.
This make some improvement in responce.

Has anyone realy come up with a good way to get this heli to flip faster? Even with the Piccolo paddles, and throws set as high as the swash will allow, It is slow. Longer fly bar??? HELP My brushless needs to be worked!
