Guys,

Looking for some precise flybar weight. Or anyone can suggest a pair of flybar paddle with flybar weight. I am looking for the ultimate smooth and wind resistant setup for the t-rex 600 combination. At the moment my 600 doesn't track nicely soon as there's like a 7 mph wind. I like scale type flying.

Maybe I"ll be the first to say that this does not sound right.
TR600 should be very stable in 7mph. I don't have one (yet) but I have a 550 and have flown several TR 600's of friends and they are VERY solid in a 7mph wind.
You say you like scale flying but maybe your headspeed is just really low?

The Raptor green paddles are a fair bit heavier that the stock Align, and the raptor black paddles are even heavier still, I would try the green first.

I have also found the trex 600 to be not good in the wind, oddly my 500 is easier to fly, alot easier.

Maybe those white Align paddles would help.

My friend definitely told me that his t-rex 500 flys much better in wind than t-rex600. Maybe is the head speed. I have scorpion 1100 with 15t pinion running at 100%, the headpeed sound very fast not sure the rpm, but during hover the heli don't stay put with about 7 mph wind. I don't understand. I also am running Curtis youndblood 3d blades.

I will try some thing different, thinking of the Rotortech paddles.

Ive used the green paddles, they do make it fly alot better but then the stationary fliprate becomes even more sluggish than it already is, I think if you put really heavy paddles on you will be surprised how smoothly it flies.
My friend definitely told me that his t-rex 500 flys much better in wind than t-rex600. Maybe is the head speed.
Im inclined to agree, I think it just comes down to it being so marginal on power, Ive previously owned a Shuttle 30, a Calibre 30 and a JR Airskipper 50 size, a HDX 500e and my Trex 500 and none have been like my Rex 600 is to fly, if you were to see me fly my Trex 600e around you would probly assume I have only been flying RC helis for a couple of weeks, I can only assume its something like flying a heli without a flybar would feel like. Oddly I find if theres not a single bit of wind and I mean perfectly still conditions my 600 is almost flyable, but unfortunately perfectly still conditions are seldom here where I live.

Come to think, I think Im going to put heavy paddles on my 600 again and give it a try, only prob is Ive taken out the receiver to use in a foamie.

If you're going to do scale instead of 3D,try lowering you're throttle curve a bit to calm the heli down. Also putting them carbon paddles on will just increase you're cyclic movement faster unless you add some weights on. Go to http://www.century.com for some paddles selection since they specialized some of scale heli's out there in the market. Or wait until the align flybarless come out and just fine tune the unit to the model without having to worry about the fly paddles.

I still find all this hard to believe and that there are not other people chiming in. I just flew my friend's TR600 today in 10mph winds and it was very stable. I wish I had clocked his headspeed to measure it. I know my 500 is running a high headspeed of 2800 which helps alot but don't think it can handle the gusts like a 600.
