I noticed a large change from white to green, also its not at all pitchy in FFF, other than being careful on cyclic given the responsiveness. I don't agree with the statement about lighter paddles being more pitchy in FF - that relates to the profile of the paddle not the weight. Pitchiness is also affected by the blades and control slop/stiffness.

Hmm.
Just curious, i was wondering why i'v never seen any longer flybars...
i'v read that increasing the flybar length will increase the cyclic responce...
Does anybody do this?

A longer flybar will make it more responsive but also may well make it more pitchy. The flybar length, paddle weight, paddle efficiency, flybar ratio and so on, is all a dirty great big trade off to try and get a setup that maintains reasonable stability in wind or FF while offering a good responsivness and flip rate. All these systems are progressive with one exception, the dampers. Carbon Extreme or Infinivation dampers have a 'knee' inso much as the damper core is a rigid material with an O ring round it. The o ring is nice and compressible, so it gives nice stable hovering where cyclic inputs under a certain threshold are responded to gently, but as soon as you give a cyclic input that causes the oring to fully compress, the input dynamics become much more coupled to the blade pitch so the heli suddenly responds more quickly.

Pitchyness
I agree with you Jeff, I think it is either a skill factor or a blade factor...

Paddles
I started off with 80mm V Paddles on my Titan. Incredibly slow cyclic, reason was flybar length. The V paddles are much smaller than the TT paddles.

I borrows a set of white paddles and they flew ok. I now have greenies and while better than the whites, I like it faster.

Next step is back to the V Paddles with a Hirobo EVO 50 flybar. I think my V Paddles are 14 grams.

I also have a set of 90 and 95mm V Paddles.

Hi Evan, i am using the new CFK Carbon Paddles on the stock flybar: running 9 degrees cyclic on a Kasama Head, and it is the fastest cyclic i have had to date: 21/22K on the head.

GREEN PADDLES YEAH
Hey I just flew my Rap50 with the GReenies for the 1st time...holy cow I love them, the roll and flip rate is superd dooper fast. Forward flight is fine...don't know waht eveyone is talking about being "pitchy" I love these paddles they rock yaaal
