Hi all,
Figured with all the Blade 400 and MSR talk I would throw in a Cp question. Has anyone found any decent aftermarket paddles for the little cp? Carbon fiber or anything lighter than the e-flite plastic. I have been looking, but have found nothing of the same dimentions. I know this thread is going to turn into "what do you want to do that for?" but I had to ask. Happy new year everyone.

Try Axe cp paddles; Heli-Max stock number HMXE7804. $3.59 for two paddles at Tower Hobbies. They are the best lightweight paddles for sport or 3D flying. 'Buildem' introduced them to us; they work better than any I've tried. Very light and stiff. None better.

I found the heli max paddles paddles at the LHS. I also found the carbon fiber ones for the axe too, but I wasn't ready to part with the 45 bucks to try them.

I don't think that metal or carbon fiber parts (except for the Microheli swashplate) are much, if any, of a benefit on a Blade. The plastic stuff works so well together that once you have one of these helis dialed in, you can't really ask for more. I like a 10T pinion for the stability that a high headspead brings.

That is the same thing I use. I have run the carbon fiber blades and the regular symetrical wood blades. I have had great success with all of these, provided they are balanced. I really wanted to see if a paddle up grade made any difference. I supposse I would have to lighten the heli to really make any difference in flight. I keep mine heavier than others with a 1320 lipo, super skids, and a GY401. However it still has plenty of power, flys like a humming bird.

Yea with the extra weight of the battery and skids it would seem that your heli is bottom heavy. It probably not want to invert too well. I'm not sure if the paddle change will help, but it might. Those Axe CP paddles are light and quicken the response of my Blades.
