View Full Version : Align please make some lighter paddles for the 250

I'm starting to agree.
I could use a hair or two quicker cyclic.
Some green or yellow Gorilla gear and paddles would be nice :smokin:

I didn't take any photos but my "new modified" paddles work very well... I see a noticeable increase in Cyclic rate and they sound much smoother. I have ordered a couple more sets and I'm going to do some more experimenting this week, once I have a good shape and airfoil Iíll post a set by step, It was not hard to do and worth the effort!

Best I can do on short notice

Really? I had the heli with me at work so I used an old camara to take the photo... sooo I didn't have an old set with me. Here is a side by side from the work shop

How did you ensure the weights and shapes remained the same between the two paddles?
EDIT: Never mind Kevin, I see you intend to post a step by step. Sweeeeet! :Bang

A friend just gave me a set of Gaui paddles, they fit on the Align flybar (easier than the stock Align paddles?!); I'll test it this weekend.

Anyone try a flybar for a ricco, they are much longer and I think the diameter is the same.
Unfortunately I do not have one around to measure anymore.

The Gaui paddles are not a good choice for the Trex 250 in my opinion; they are WAY too unstable.
When hovering indoors with the Gaui Paddles sensitivity to changes in collective was greatly reduced compared to the stock paddles (and cyclic was very responsive); but once you got the heli outside look out, the slightest breeze would send it off in unpredictable directions!
