Just checked the geometry, and the pitch arms on the blade grips are shorter on the 3-blade head, 28mm vs 32mm on the 2-blade! This means I cannot use my old settings, but it also means that I need less swash travel for the same pitch angle. All other measurements seem to be the same, but it's not so easy to get an accurate reading.
I may be able to use the stock "turnbuckles" if I remove the removable main shaft collar. That will lower the head by 8-10mm, which may be sufficient. I only need to do that to set the maximum collective and cyclic throws in the BeastX; once I get that programmed I can use those settings to figure out the best servo link compromise.
