Default KBDD paddles

just got a used B400 and it came with KBDD paddles and tail blades.
it was amazing to me how the cicling was so damm fast. way to fast
for me at this stage of learning, to control. so needles to say i took them
off and went with the stock paddles and it calm it down to where I can hover
and such just like my others.
any body else use this? there are two holes on the paddles wondering what
the rear hole would do to the cicling?
should be a great upgrade for when I start doing 3D.

Using the rear holes would make your heli a lot more touchy.

Keep the KBDD paddles for the future.

Once you get comfortable, you will really like them.

Cailid is correct-installing the flybar in the rear hole of the paddle will increase the cyclic response (I have all mine set up this way). Lots of fun, but when you re-install the paddles, use the front hole first.

After you fly it with the front hole for while, then try the back.

I'm using the KBDD paddles and tail blades and I love them. Actually, I got the bright yellow paddles and orange tail rotors originally for better orientation, but the flight characteristics are very nice. I use the paddles w/o weights, and in the back holes and I find them easily manageable.
