Default Max Range pitch -9 / +9; ???????

I had a 3DX500; using whole movement Swashplate it reached a range pitch +12 / -12

Now I bought a HDX500SE; using whole movement Swashplate get a pitch range maximum +9 / -9 .

What is your pitch range?

Have you made changes?


Thanks.

I had about 9.5'+- with my HDX500 when it came as standard

I swapped over the top half of the head and turned it into a 3DX500 !

I had to dial the collective pitch back to just under 10' because I was stripping maing gears all the time. I bought a few Lepton main gears and they handle the power a bit better but still can't put full pitch at it, Tic toc's are especially tough on the main gear I have found.

Even I had on 3dx500 the same problem com +-11

I solved main gear changing. Now is a gear mudulo 1 with 60T / 15T.

Now I have no more problems.
