The ideal paddles for a Freya with a the SSZ IV used to be nothing else than Hirobo's own 3D paddles (0414-336) without any weights.

Than Hirobo released the FBL head for their line of helis. I converted my Freya to the SSL head but have no intention to convert my SDX.

Please make recommendations regarding paddles for 3D for the SDX.

I fitted a YS56SR in the SDX and must say I am impressed, been flying only 90's for the past year. But I need more cyclic response.

Already manipulated the head, to get the maximum out of the head for 3D.

Has anybody tried the CY Super Stubz paddles (Super Stubz 3105 - YEI-YB-P3105)on the SDX for 3D?

Stock paddles with either half the lead weight or no weight is what I found works best on the SDX. Very quick this way.

No weights at this stage... still not quick enough IMO!

Flybar lenght?

Move the balls on the B/H mixer to the middle position on each side, then increase your cyclic swash values. Mine are at 43 A , 43 E and -50 P. This will give you ±14° collective and ±10° cyclic with servo arms per manual. With no weight or half the lead in the paddles, this setup is lightning quick. No other paddle is quicker than the Hirobo with no weight. Super-stubz will seem slowwwwwwwww by comparison!

I tried all variations of weights on the stock sdx paddles and the stubs. I liked the stubs the best. IMO they had the best performance vs predictability. Both had some ff pitchness.

The key to 3D on the SDX is the B/H mixing arms, not the paddles. You will lose stability when you change the ball positions, but it is worth it if you want to 3D this bird.

i have tried a couple of Cf paddles on my sdx and they mostly didin't feel any different than the stock hirobo plastic paddles with no weights in them. the best paddles that made my sdx livelier were a set of rotortech paddles. i immediately felt the difference and that is what i am using now thay also look really great on the sdx!

Thanks for all the replies.

Piyaphan1,

Have you got a part number for the Funkey paddles?

This is the one:

The shape is similar to Hirobo's 3D carbon paddles for the Turbulence.

Thanks Piyaphan1, looks familiar.

The Hirobo 3D paddles made a significant difference to flight performance on the SSZ-IV (D3) head, hope these inrease cyclic response on the SDX as on the d3.

You're right! I have Hirobo's 3D paddles on both of my Turbulences and you could expect the same result on the SDX with these Funkey paddles.
