To get a faster cyclic response, I've read that a lot of people use lighter paddles (especially the white MA paddles). What about moving the linkage ball to the outer hole on the washout arms? The Raptor manual says this is for "extreme 3D", but will this give me the same effect as running lighter paddles? I was thinking it is easy to just relocate the ball link, but was wondering if there are disadvatages to doing it this way -vs- getting lighter paddles.

Paddles

Try moving the balls out on the washout arms first, then if it's still not fast enough for you, get some different paddles. steve.

outer holes definately. It's not a huge change, just a small but noticable increase in your cyclic. It wont make you crash or anything.

However, if you then throw on the MA paddles, use like another 10 or 15% of expo or turn down the dual rates for the first flight, the paddles really make the heli a lot more responsive around center stick.

Cool, Thanks guys. This is what I was hoping to hear. I'm gonna try the outer holes with the stock paddles.

Outer holes don't make much difference but it all helps.
