Yesterday I got around to fixing the throttle arm to get it parallel to servo arm. I ended up adding two thin washers underneath to get it to orient correctly. I had to re-setup my end point adjustments and link length. At 50% output on the throttle servo I'm now at the halfway point on the carb barrel. Per the YS documentation this is the hover throttle position.

Last night I realized I hadn't any stick time since Saturday. It was past bedtime but figured I'd get 15m in on the sim. Worked T patterns nose in. Doing better on Tail in to nose in piro without dropping the tail.

Today I'm researching tail kicking out from hover to full collective. I need to check my rate setup. I've also asked about the safety of my gearing on the Pantera. I can get a headspeed of 2300 if the motor is WOT. The posted max headspeed is 1850. Some have run up to 2200 on the boards. The motor is either max RPM 18k or 22k depending on where I read. Regardless I'm concerned.
