These sporting performance and FAI-style flight flybar paddles are designed for use with a 3mm flybar. They are well suited for use on various brands of 30 through 50-class models. Select these paddles when you are more interested in smooth and elegant maneuevers versus the abrupt 3D-style of maneuvers. If your interest is scale, or FAI flight, these are the flybar paddles for you.
These paddels are supplied with a lead insert, which may be optionally fit into the leading edge. By inserting this extra mass, the cyclic response of your model is tamed down making it far easier to hover due to the increased dampening provided by the added mass.
While standard paddles screw onto the flybar, these paddles require a longer flybar, which slips through the length of the paddle so that the threaded end sticks out. Then a 3mm nut and washer are used to secure them the flybar.
These paddles are very popular amongst pilots aspiring to perform smooth FAI-style maneuvers because the large radius entry, i.e. blunt airfoiled leading edge, results in very smooth dampening forces being applied to the rotor head. As a consequence, the model responds more smoothly when performing loops, rolls, and stall turns, which in turn are elegantly described through the air.
