You been listening to the wrong people - some fairly big differences like no more pulleys on the bridles, thinner leading edge etc....
Nice, no more pulleys on the 2020 rebel. Tell the guys from Duotone as well that they made that change :rollgrin:

Apologies - the dice and evo have changed to no pulleys, been testing them recently. Rebel is still a different feel to 2019 with the changes made. I currently fly a 2019 Rebel and have flown the 2020 version.

Does anybody have an issue with trailing edge fluttering while looping, downlooping-helilooping a Rebel 2020?
I hate that noisy farting sound.

What could be that? I had no issue on Rebel 2018.

Have they removed the sticks (battons)on the trailing edge?

North Rebel 2018 did not have battens.

No battens since they swapped to the 4 line setup in 2018.

Depends on how hard you pull it. A normal down/heli doesn't produce it. Hockey-stick a half-sheeted bar and it will.
