Hello friends, I have just bought a trex 500 (flybared), I then fitted it with a set of align carbon paddles hoping it would do the job for hardcore 3d, my atv's are at 150% so travel isnt the problem, but it just dosent seam to want to flip or roll as quick as i would like it to, could anyone recomend a good set of 3d paddles?

Its not so much in the paddles as it is in the cyclic pitch you have. Do you know what the pitch settings are? collective and cyclic?

The Align 3D plastic paddles that are hollow are pretty good. Is that 12 degrees pitch or cylic throws?

You may need to increase the travel on the swash mix page.

I used CY 393's on my 500 and found them to be effective.

What is your cyclic pitch? You stated your collective pitch +-12.

The align black carbon paddles worked pretty well for me.

Just set your pitch at zero degrees and give full ail cylic throw and see what the pitch is.
