No more tweaking.......time to FLY !

Well.........
got the V-paddles.........It is noticeably slower in the roll and flip with the Vpaddles on.....so I went back to the stock evo paddles....(no weights).

I also switched from a MP to a SB-50HP. Just a hair more power with the hatori, and it sounds soooo much nicer .

This, and the head setup from my last post will be my final setup........It rocks !

I just put the ugly neon green TT paddles on my Evo, and I'm very pleased with them. Certainly worth a try if you want faster response. It responds faster than the stock paddles with no weights in them, and it seems to track better in forward flight.

They are ugly as hell, though.

A friend tried the ugly green paddles on his rappy and didn't find them much different from the white MinAir paddles.

I've tried the stock evo paddles with different weights and no weight, white MinAirs, and Vpaddles, and I've had the best results with the stock ones(w/no weights)...........so that's what I'm sticking with now.

All of the paddles I listed above had quick initial response, but the difference was that the stock ones have the fastest sustained roll or flip speed when you hold the cyclic stick over.

Make sure you didn't leave some lead in your evo paddles. Mine weigh 16 grams each ready to bold on ( the paddle, steel insert with set screws and the root cap ). Mine are noticeably quicker in the roll than any other paddle I've tried yet. They are sensitive in FFF but I wouldn't call them pitchy. Do you know the weight of the greenies ?

No I don't know the weight, 20g, I think. I just know that I'm happy with the flight characteristics of them. I would have stuck with the stock paddles with no weight, as I was happy with them (and they weren't so damn ugly), but I had a crash that was bad enough to destroy one of them, so I figured I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did, I like the feel of the heli with them over the stockers. And no, I didn't have any lead left in my stock paddles, it was all pulled out.

Dear All,

Did anyone feel they lost much in the way of hover stability when they took all the paddle weight out including the lead on the Evo? I moved to an Evo-50 from a Shuttle. The Shuttle had the roll response of a tank so I put a set of Evo paddles on with no weights and simply loved the way if flew. I'd put the leading leads in and it just felt like it dragged through rolls and I'd take them out only love the way it fly, but I was worried that the paddles would flutter with no lead in the leading edge and have the same worries on the Evo-50.

I didn't see much of a difference in the hover without the weights, except that it reacted to my inputs quicker.
