If the paddle is the shape of a wing use the one in the front.

I would put a grub screw on both sides to secure the paddles to the flybar.

If you didn't get the the answer needed, post a pic. Sounds confusing on whay you are referring to. I've only seen paddles with 1 set screw.

I have been using the front holes, and the raptor 30 flys great. I have read the second holes are for quicker response, but have not tried them

this brand of paddle just has a 2.5 mil hard nylon hole that the 3 mil FB screws into and thiers no holes for grub screws so looks like were good unless you guys don't think so, they screw in pretty tight so don't think theyd pull out + were just running a typical OS32 and flying around, but again if you guys know something I don't just speakup, thanx

You must be talking about paddle weights, if that's the case forget what I posted.

no need for set screws on the KBDD paddles.The front holes are for most flyers and the back holes are for very fast response.But may be too twitchy for some pilots/set ups

If you have any other questions just ask

Dan, use the front holes like mentiined above. Rear holes are for really hot dog flying.

now that I think about it the front/rear hole location makes sense and would act like the CG location on a wing or model,nose heavy "front hole" and the subject is slow to act, tail heavy "rear hole" aggressive, wouldn't that be the same principle for these paddle hole locations?

They screw on ... and off. Why not try both holes and see which one you personally like the best ? Check the balance.
