I don't know.. I'm plenty happy with my stock Freya paddles.. they're cheap, survived my last crash, work great, and have adjustable weight...

raptor kid I tryed a few diferent sets on my R80 and ended up using the M.A white paddels. The V's seemed to be smooth but to slow for me and the ksj's where very pitchy. The M.A white padles seem to work well, They can still get pitchy when the wind picks up.

I haven't tryed the MAH paddles yet but have herd nothing but good abou them. The bad thing about the carbon paddles is the price. Every time you crash there goes $50 to $70 for a new set. Also you could try the black M.A paddles, they are a little more stable so should work out great with the rappy.

MY CHOICE

I like the MA Pro II paddles. Can be set up for 3D at 25 grams or FAI at 55 grams or anywhere in between.

On a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the view never changes.

v-paddles

V-paddles are the only carbon paddles I have tried and I think they are awesome. Very smooth and stable, yet responsive.

I have tried the White MA paddles on 30 and 60 size and found them to be less stable then the v-paddles and they were also pitchy in fast forward flight.

The white MA paddles were used on a Futura SE and also a Raptor 46.

I'm sure the paddles will have different effects depending on the heli and rotor system on which they are installed.

Freya paddles

I just loaned a set of Freya paddles to a friend to try on his Raptor 60. He is very impressed with how the pitching issue is gone and the reponsiveness is improved.

I too vote for the Freya paddles, pitchiness is gone compared to the white MA paddles. Daz...
