I have purchased a used fury expert/extreme. I am setting it up and wondering about the paddles. Do you put some CA on them then screw them onto the flybar or will they stay put by just screwing them on?

Also it came with a YS 61 ST2 I am running 30% CP and stock gearing. I have TT 710 CF blades for this. Will these be to much for the engine or will they be ok? I will be looking to be doing mild 3D with this bird. Electronics are 9252's 401 with 9254.

Oh yeah how big is the fuel tank on these and how long will it last??

Paddles: If they screw on nice and tight, they stay put on their own. If the threads are worn from numerous installations, you might use a LITTLE bit of slow cure epoxy on the threads. A said a LITTLE bit, like 2-3 threads worth at the tip of the flybar. The slow cure gives you time to align things. If in doubt, spot glue them. I've seen them twist in flight. It ain't pretty.

The STII will pull 710's but you'll be pushing it with any kind of tight maneuver (lots of cyclic plus pitch). 680's to 700's will let the engine breathe a little more.

The fuel tank holds over 16 ounces when full. On an STII, it'll last the better part of a 15 min flight.

You probably be best with a set of of 680 blades and some SAB carbon paddles or V-paddles. I got the paddles for like 25$ and you can probably pick up a set of 680's for 75$ used or around 100 new.

Hey,

I always put a spot of slow cure CA, the slower the better! If your using the ZAP line of CA then the yellow is slow cure and gives you a decent length of time to get them spot on. It was slow enough for me and i'm a sod for wanting them spot on and tweek them till they are.

680mm blades will be a better choice, 710's will just sap the power! get a decent set like V Blades or SAB's, NHP's are good also.

Electronics seem fine, unless you already have one get a decent high capacity RX battery and a goverenor and that machine will kick ass!!

Cheers!

680 SAB's are $105 at Ricks. Try them, you will like them. Forms a pretty white disk as well!

I drilled a small hole in the middle of the paddle thread. It allows me to put a drop of fast CA in there to hold them. So far, so good.
