When I bought my used Raven it came with white X-Cell paddles. It seems to fly great with these, but is there another set of paddles I should look at? Its very smooth, could be a little faster on cyclic. I have a set of the snot yellow century ones, any better?

I give up on Loctite, nothing lasts long enough to vibrate loose anymore.

Kristopher,

The X-cell white paddles are pretty good, and they are light making them fast. The Ravens now come with the grey Predator paddles and IMHO they are comparable to the X-cell paddles you have. If you want faster cyclic, replace the short balls on the inner ring of the swash with long balls.

Steve, do you ever sleep or just hang out here on RR

I might try the trick with the longer ball. I need to try bumping up my dual rates as well, I was just looking at it and I am a pretty toned down. Just hate to screw it up, flying smooth as butta right now.

Kristopher,

Yes, I guess I spend too much time here. If you have your rates turned down, by all means turn them up first. Turn up the AFR's to the max and then dial in as much expo as you want to keep it flying smooth and that may give you the response and smoothness you want.

I flew my Raven and then my Falcon for years with the white x-cell paddles. They are pretty good and there are pilots at the field that prefer them to the Centuries.

I you want faster cyclic go to +/-6.5 degrees on cyclic and change the dampers to the reds.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.
