Please try some kind of puncuation marks like maybe a period or comma. Tuff reading my friend

Happy flying,

I reject your reality and substitute my own :0)

Hi motorhead

colin mill has a good writeup on flybars , here is a link , scroll down to section 10

* Increasing the weight of the paddles slows it down.
* Increasing the area of the paddles speeds it up
* Increasing the rotor RPM speeds it up
* Increasing the aspect ratio (span/chord) of the paddles speeds it up.
* Increasing the length of the flybar speeds it up.
