Default once and for all, how should my paddles be set?

I'm going round and round with myself here. My heli does seem to fly better (alot more stable) if I put a little angle on the flybar paddles, 10-15 degress max. I'm also reading that they should be flat all over the place, when I do this, it does seem harder to control. so what gives? ohyeah just mounted my CF main blades tonight...going to give them a run in about 4 minutes...thanks!

Hi

In correct way, the paddle plate should be flat (0 degree). Some say (I do feel also) that if you set your paddle plate with some AoA, it is more stable. I think Micro Electric Helli are very unstable due to it is light and fixed collective (I only refering to fix collective, not those with collective pitch micro helli)

So the bottom line is up to you.

If both flybar paddles are level, you will easily see that when one paddle gets into positive AoA and the other becomes negative. The flybar never seems tightened enough in the hub and turns around easily during flight.

Positive AoA for both paddles will prevent negative AoA from happening and can even auto correct it when the flybar does become loose in flight. That's why fligh is easier to control and hover more stable. The extra lift is just a bonus. But don't overshoot the AoA, it should always be less than blade pitch.
