The stock decals on my Trex600n, flybar paddles were beginning to peel, so I oredered some colored plastic ones to replace them. The new ones are quite a bit smaller and the package said they were for a 500 size, but they screwed on to my 3mm flybar perfectly. Will I be ok using these? I am still fairly new to helis and not doing any aerobatics yet. I'm sure it will react a little differently, but I just wanted to see what you thought.

It will react ALOT differently

If you're still fairly new to flying, I wouldn't advise trying them just yet. Order the right size, and put those in a box for later.

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!
RE-KIT!!!!!

No, I would not fly a 600 with 500 paddles.. The weight difference is gonna have a bad effect.. Others with more experience could better state the effects.. Mine peeled too.. I have flown without them and didn't notice a difference.. But later I put clear packing tape on them . Ended up liking the look..

(wow.. George jumped in before I could type it out, gotta be quick around here..)

I would recommend you use the proper 600 size paddles. Whether they are the kbdd plastic, or the align carbon paddles. The 500 size are likely much lighter and smaller which will likely give you a very snappy cyclic response making the heli more difficult to fly for a beginner.

The black carbon align paddles are pretty good all around. They are responsive enough for later when you start flying aerobatics but stable enough that you will not be out of control when just hovering or flying about.

If you would like a very stable, less aerobatic heli get heavier paddles. But either way, use the proper size paddle for your heli.

You can use Raptor paddles also, they are every where and you have a lot of weight choices. The 500 size will clean your clock!

Lighter/smaller paddles will give you faster cyclic response, so if you've started flying recently I would take george0079's advise and put them in a box for a while.

You will love them later!

I kept going 'til I recently lost the flybar completely on my 700 (V-Bar setup) now I have the fast response I wanted

Fly it like you stole it!!!
