Ok does anyone here have a raptor 50 with the Washout arms on outer hole and the V-Paddles or Greenies w/o weights?

if so, how does it respond? is it a little touchy? or is it good?

I have the TT greenies on the outer hole and it flies great. Just dial in some expo and it is smooth. they dont pitch down in forward flight and the flip rate is faster than any other paddle i have tried. It will be touchy at first but as long as you put in expo it is stable as a rock

i have that and i dont think its touchy the greenies make it respond faster i think faster than the v paddles thats only my opinion i really like the way it flies with that setup. i dont do hard 3d but its not any harder to fly is still easy to do a good hover .if you try it and find it too touchy set up your dual rate till you get used to it .
good luck

My V-Paddles Should be in tomorrow, so will have to take it easy for a bit.. will probably fly around with headspeed down to 1700 from 1900 just to get used to the difference.

i had V paddles on mine and i hated them. they are far too slow imo on a raptor 50, even on the outside mixing hole with 2k on the head.

i changed it for the greenies and they fly brilliantly. i wouldn't say they are that much more pitchy than the V's if at all. i dialed in 10% expo and away we go.

i didn't have weights on any of them.

cheers

The Green are warped, I have the White. There fine a little slower, not by much, but not warped.

Ive read many good things about the V-Paddles and decided to go with them over the Greenies.. i dont like the "Pitchy" Forward flight that is the main side affect people keep talking about.

it's a personal preference and feel thing.

just the V's were not for me, the std rappy paddles are nearly as fast as the V's. the greenies and even the whites are more responsive when i flew them and i can't say i have a pitchy problem.

just get a set of greenies aswell for all they cost and see what you like.

cheers

Pitchy is the heli, not the pads. Get a Push pull upgrade for the elve. prob solved. The greenis will give a snape roll or flip( not that smooth) that is it. These thing are on the borderline of the KSJ pads. Im not that impressed with the greens, the whites are 9 bucks, and thats smoothness to the heli I can deal with for me. Now if you just doing piros, the greens are choice. But find out WHAT YOU FLY. Thats what you end up with.

also..
I have heard that sanding the sedges slightly will take the pichy feel everyone hates out. My v's are ok but I will try put some greenies on sanded a little.

sanding the leading edge is the old trick with MA white paddles as they have a sharp leading edge. however, the greenies and whites don't have this sharp edge and are infact the same shape as the std black rappy paddles. i'm not sure sanding these will make a difference altough you could try it.

Go Green!
I like the greenies you have to make sure to have the paddles aligned properly !!!

I also like the 3mm white MA paddles but I sand the leading edge to blunt them. They fly much like the greenies but more crisp for me…I have a set of greenies on right now next week I could have MA whites on ?

V-Paddles are not for me because they don’t roll or flip as fast as the greenies or MA whites!

The push pull will help, But the Paddle alignment is what I see causing it to be pitchy if they are slightly off! Take your time on aligning them they must be on queue!

Tim,

When you get a chance, look down the cord of your green paddles.

Hi Brad
Yes I have seen that but they still fly very well for me!

But Hey they won't be for everyone, I just know many that are flying them and having a blast with them like me.

I would tell you too try the MA's if you haven't done so yet.. They will be pitchy if you don't sand the leading edge Oh and be sure to balance them after the sanding I have seen you fly so I think you will like them, I do!

They fly a lot like the greenies with a little more crispness!

Yep, mine too. Doesn't seem to affect how they fly.

I've had the black ones (obviously), the white and the greens. By FAR!!!, the greens are the best. I'm also in the outer link of the arm. It flies great. Excellent response, sharp turns, it doesn’t feel like its fighting the turns at all.

The only issue I've had (still have) is that when I'm stopping a forward momentum I hear the paddles flap a bit. I know its not the blades since they are carbons and are sharply tracked.

Another thing I've noticed is that the fly bar is bended a bit upward (evenly on both sides). Could this be caused to positive pitch n the paddles

By the way, I have 20% on the exp.
