I picked up a Q50 pro from someone this week. I have A few questions, first, What is a good head speed for this heli, I have a cal 30 now and it runs around 1900. Second, I want to relace the paddles, he gave me a large bag of extras, it included short paddles with "quick" in the corner, the ones installed now are heavy and large. These look as if they screw on. the ones now have the fly bar going all the way thru. If I put these on it will place the paddles way out there. Do they sell a shorter fly bar? I had to call QWW and order a main gear and fan shroud, ( the result of not looking at it close enough, lesson learned) Since I had to get the gear out I started tearing it down, the manual is very vaig in assembly. Also there are two ver of the same manual? I want to replace some head parts, namely the hiller arms, but the manual shows two versions, the ones I have now are short blocks with two different size balls installed. also which ball goes to the grips, He had them so they were oppisite each other. When you move the swash up and down the links for the hiller to the swash hit the flybar arm. Thanks....

I have always run the Quick paddles that screw on. There may be better ones out there, but I've been happy with them. I also use the hole closer to the leading edge to tone it down soemwhat. I don't know if you have the stock flybar or not, I'll have to measure mine and give you the length, but the stock one works fine. On my 46 I ran about 1800 on the head speed, but I don't see 1900 as a problem. On the hiller, I use the long side, or long ball attached to the link going down to the swash. It's pretty close to the flybar carrier, but never had it rub or hit. The manual will usually show both the pro and sport version head. That may be what you are seeing that is confusing. You can download the latest manual from this link. If may be a little clearer.

Hi Dave,
QWW has 2 versions , 1 Sport and 1 Pro, you'll have to compare the illustration with the one you have. Irwins direction are more picture oriented than verbage, I think more people look at pictures than read instructions, MOPO
Since you called QWW they (Jon) is very knowledgeable and he will help you out with any questions you have.

Stopped over at QWW at lunch to get the parts to repair the OD $230.00 total, not as bad as I thought it would be. Jon went over the heli with me and that's what he came up with, biggest cost, the 700 Blades, but what to do. My fault the OD broke

Yep, the blades are what kills ya. Had to get another pair myself after this past Sat. I actually snapped the tailboom on mine. Think it was metal fatigue and overtightening of the fin boom mount. It was about 50 feet up or so. So had to main shaft, landing gear, flybar, boom and those darn blades..

Believe it or not, I have not had any problems with the screw on paddles as long as they were screwed on till they stopped. Some use CA or JB weld. I have never used anything on them. Using 30%, I would say about 12 to 15 min on the run time.
