KBDD gave me a chance to test them and I just wanted to show them off. Here is just a few pics of the fun. Check these out. Not sure when they will be released.

They look like some hirobo paddles a friend of mine has on his 600n.

They fly very well on high speed stuff they are extremely stable but they are light so still very quick off center I have not found any bad tendencies at all and i have about 20 flights on them now cant wait to get my K3D done so i can have a go at the 3mm version . The other nice idea they used was a tapered hole so they tighten up really well any other questions be glad to answer them

What do they weigh?

Why Hover a Yak, when a Heli does it better?

I was just thinking the same thing!
Amazing how stuff can come and go in style isn't it??
I still have a set of the grey ones somewhere in my junk pile, I should pull them out an sell them

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

I agree on the colors i really like the orange and yellow they are doing them in all the colors of the tail blades so good selection. I got to see first hand how they make them so i understand why it takes so long to get ready to produce them

Which hole is for which style flying, any ideas? They did not come with any instructions.

From looking at your pics, looks like you are using the hole closest to the leading edge?

Just got these in the mail today from Ready Heli, the orange is VERY bright, I like it!

WOW! I e-mailed KBDD the same question about the different holes when I posted here. They replied 10 mins later with an answer! Talk about quick customer service.

So, the answer is the hole closest to the leading edge is already threaded from the factory. This hole is for sport flying and 3D according to KBDD. The hole closest to the trailing edge is for "extreme 3d" and is not threaded from the factory.

So, answers that question, and for anyone else who was wondering.

yes the paddles are designed to be used in the front hole if you look that centers the airfoil on the fly bar and takes care of the pitchiness in fff . then they are still quick because of the light weight hope you like them let me know what you think

p.s. what heli are they going on ?

KBDD 4mm paddle for 90 weigh 15.3g and 3mm paddle for 50 weigh 15.4g.
It appears to be done in the same molde with different diameter pins in the side action to produce the holes.

Due to same mold, the one with 3mm (for 50) actually weigh more because of more plastic material.

Interesting, so the 50 and 90 paddles are the exact same size? Only the flybar diameter is different?

Do they track better than the stock trex NSP carbon fiber paddles?

Any one compare the two?
