I got the blue paddles with my Raptor 90 3d kit.
After converting it to electric, i'd like to do relaxed flying and some fast forward flight with the heli, will the blue paddles be fine or should i get carbon fiber or red paddles? keep in mind, relaxed flying AND some fast forward flying

Then you want the black stock paddles. They are heavier and slower on the cyclics.

If you skip me I can't play!

PJRono may be right that the black ones would suit your requirement better but I like the blue ones and find them fine for FFF hovering etc so why not give them a whirl first and then change if they aren't quite the feel you are looking for. some 30 gram SABS might also be nice

TT. Black paddles are 30g.
White, 25g.
Blue, Red and Green, 20g.
Edit: Did not see the R90.

I'm pretty sure the blue and red are the same weight. I also would suggest the black ones for the type of flying you describe.

I agree, the black ones will be much more stable in high speed forward flight. They will also make it easier to fly in windy weather.

What headspeed are you running?

Sent you a PM. I have a set of almost new black paddles that I took off my Raptor and I have red on there now, just don't like the color and would prefer the blue.

For relaxed flying you should stick with the black paddles.

Thanks, i'm going to give them a try like uk sailor suggest, if they really are too unstable for my style i'll go black. I'll see how it goes, does TT make carbon paddles for the 90?
