I was just checking out the century web site and found they have new carbon flybar paddles.
But i have a question about them. What is the difference between the Carbon 3D flybar Paddles and the Carbon F3C flybar Paddles? They look really cool and might want to get a set. Also what would be the advantage of carbon paddles?

A.J.,

The cabon 3D paddles are really light, and therefore really fast. I've not flown them because I have no need for that amount of cyclic speed (the grey Predator paddles are fast enough for me), but the guys that have say you need weights to adjust the speed they are so fast.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

The differece between the 3D & FAI units is the weight of the paddle. The FAI one is heavier. I cannot tell you their respective weights as I have yet to weigh them.

Also you will note that they ahave a relatively large (wing area) and have a realtively "fat" airfoil. The large wing area will give them cyclic power and the fat airfoil will give them flight stability.

Then one can use flybar weights to "tune" the system to the desired "frrl" one prefers.
