Hey guys, first of all I would like to thank everyone who has helped me out in the past to get me where I'm at right now flying 3D with my heli. I fly the T-Rex 450 V2

Anyways, my question is, with 3D flying...does having a larger or smaller flybar paddle speed up the way the heli turns/flips/barrel rolls etc...? Also, will taking the flybar weight off the flybar rod help increase the manurvable capabilities?

Thanks again

I run Gorilla paddles on my V2... Unweighted. Pretty fast on rolls and flips. I have a friend that runs Super Stubs.. Much smaller than the Gorilla paddles and the response rate is almost too fast for my taste. Taking the flybar weights off is like reducing Expo. It will respond quicker to your inputs. Try moving them in about halfway to see how the heli feels. If all is good, take them off and try again. Good luck!

They grow-up so fast, it seem like it was just yesterday that he was just learning to hover.

Congratulations on the 3D.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Lighter paddles will speed it up. Super stubs are a little pitchy for my likes

the lighter and more surface area the paddles, the faster the cyclic.
If you want fast rolls and flips, get the biggest but lightest paddles you can find.

I need to get a second job just to buy parts.

Oh stop, you're making me get all teary eyed. Our little man doesn't need us anymore.

I run the super stubz with no weights and love them.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
