I want to get some new carbon paddles for my blade but not sure which would fit. What options do we have? If you can provide the make and a link, that would be very coo. Thanks. :thumbup:

I use the T-Rex 450 paddles and they work fine and you can find those just about anywhere:thumbup:

hmm Do you use the e-flight weights with the T rex paddles? Or just the paddles?

I'm using the E325 Mini Titan green paddles, they're nice. The new Curtis Youngblood paddles are coming out soon, and Align has a newer style carbon paddle.

I noticed that the paddles come in different weights. What is recommended for 3d? Thanks!

its based on you and what you feel is right for you

thier are some probramable paddles out thier wich allow you to change the wieght on the fly

I got a set of programmable outrage paddles for mine.
Seems quicker on the cyclic, but also more stable at the same time.
I'm not quite sure how that works, but it does.
I haven't tried the second hole on them yet, not sure I'm up to the increased response.

Thanks for the explanation Mon-T... I was like how the F do you program a paddle? :thinking but after reading ur post, I gather you program it by choosing which hole you use.. am i correct? :YeaBaby:

No you can change the CG of the paddle by choosing different holes.

For Normal sport flying use the hole closest to the leading edge of the paddle.
If you want to do on the spot 3D use the other hole. It's not to stable for normal flight, but kicks but for 3D (NOT RECOMMENDED if you are a beginner).

Stock paddles w/ the weights are PLENTY for most people I'd say. I still have mine at 15% expo and it's still very responsive!

I'll weigh some sets today if I have time, we should be getting the new Curtis paddles in today too, so I can throw those in the mix.

The weights on the paddles are too heavy for my liking.
I decided to go with the outrage paddles rather than CF because they match my K&B tails :YeaBaby:
Yes I do have the flybar mounted in the forward hole. I tried it the other way and was too much for me.

Mon_T I can't believe on that beautiful heli all souped up you still have the stock canopy! You need some hot cool airbrushed canopy of some kind! :)

Well I'm open for donations :)
One of those helidirect b400 painted canopies would be cool.
I'm feeling rather broke after getting all the bits for the 500.
