Posted this in Raptor section but no response............

Hello all, Well while assembling my Mavrikk head on my Rappy 50 I overtightened one of the stock TT paddle set screws and is now stripped. My question is, I have a bunch of TSK parts and I have some paddles from a Mystar 46 that weigh 21 grams each and have a sharper leading edge. The TT paddles, well you all know what they look like and mine weigh 30 grams. I am just beyond hovering and beginning forward flight and dont want a pitchy bird. anyone ever tried these or should I get a new pair of stock TT..

Thanks -- Rick

Still just Hoverin.....................

21 gram sharpe edged paddles are going to be pitchy. Go with stock paddles. Pay the postage, and I'll send you a set.

Al Magaloff is a good guy and he is correct but if you are desperate to fly-

You could add wheel collets to the flybar and bring the weight back to somewhere near the stock paddles however the thin section paddles pitch up in fff which will certainly not help you any.

Thanks for the replies guys, I figured they would be to much for me at this point.

Al, Thanks for the offer for some paddles but since I am in no hurry i will just pickup some new ones at the local hobby shop. I might still try them on my 30 just for curiousity.

Still just Hoverin.....................
