Most micro helis have a fixed rotor head linkage set.
If the feathering shaft is ok, blade tracking should be theoretically OK too.

Unfortunately this is not the case for my XK K110.
Maybe it is the main blade holder set, who knows...

I did the same on my NanoCPX before.
AFAICR I was not not on 100% travel for max/min pitch.

Basically you measure the blade length a, and the distance b between the two blades and then you will get the degree pitch from the calculated algorithm table.

German description and illustration picture:

Sometimes you find other people posting their b mm distance between the blades and suggestions like 30-35mm, 40mm, not more than ~45mm.
This is how I did it first on the K110 and it worked out of the box (even with inverted flight) without too much bogging down the motor.

Just make sure that you are not on very high positive/negative pitch values to avoid bogging down the motor.
Not sure if there will be much difference between 11, 12 and 13 degree.
I think I went with 11 degree pitch in 2012/2013.

Brushed motors do not have too much power.
At least the Nano motor is not simply turning off when you do rescue pitch rescue maneuvers over the ground like the MCPX V1/V2 :-)
