I really don't have any idea what is the purpose of the heli paddles.
Can anybody share their knowlegde of what is the purpose of the paddles and why they have different weights?

Please reply to this post or email and will be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Paddles act as a "flying servo" you control the pitch of the paddles. they dampen the inputs of the "electro-mechanical" servos.

I like to think of them as an "amplifier."

The servos would have to do an awful lot of work to move those huge blades spinning at 1800 rpm. So the servos control the much smaller paddles which in turn control the blades.
