The flybar acts a lot like power steering. It requires less servo effort to make a change in rotor pitch, and it makes your heli more agile. Some older full-scale birds had a flybar, but in recent years, electronics have made a flybar unnecessary.

The flybar is a stabilizer and makes the heli easier to control. One of the guys I fly with just removed the flybar from an EVO and had to cut down the swash tilt by about 50%. He said it was almost unflyable until he cut the throws down. He didn't intend on leaving it flybar-less, he was just experimenting.

Some of the books available explain the Bell and Hiller systems and how they interact.

Usually the paddles have no collective pitch in them. If you aren't flying 3D then you can use paddle collective to correct forward flight pitch trim. Negative collective in the paddles will cause pitch down and positive collective will cause pitch up. If you do this just be aware that when flying inverted this effect reverses.
