Default What parts in your toolbox do you use to level everything

Wondering what types of things are needed to level the paddles, blades, balance etc.. when adjusting pitch..

i have a pitch guage for the main blades - what about like a swashplate level? flybar lock?

Paddle pitch guage? etc etc

Im running a raptor 50

Paddles - Pitch gauge
Main blades - Pitch gauge
Swashplate - Use your eyes (Swashplate tool not really needed).
Flybar lock - Not needed on a Raptor 50, it has a 1:1 ratio.

Blakka is right. Leveling the swash with a tool is mostly done on CCPM machines where interraction can be an issue. With mechanical mixing, if the design is good, there will not be any noticable interraction. Stock Raptors use mechanical mixing.
