Manuals for all xcell models I have looked at have the input on the leading side of the main grip as opposed to the way Align does it (lagging). So I was going thru my MA 1005 and realized I had been flying it setup as lagging - opposite how it is supposed to be setup per the manufacture. Since I don't have much to compare to, Is their a noticeable difference in flight characteristics? Any benefits one way or the other?

I did a search and nothing popped up.

Leading gives you more control of the blade
Lagging you can get the woof and poof that used to happen with old raptors way back and then people started flipping the grips to leading to cure that problem.

It happened when you oversped the head and then all of a sudden the blades would go severely out of track and the heli would shake violently and if you were not quick to throttle hold that's where the woof and poof name came from...!
