Question Help Using PITCH GAUGE - Any Videos??

Any thoughts appreciated...searched for videos without success.

Looking for a video of how to use Pitch Gauge (not radio set up). Seems like you need 4 hands to hold everything straight if you don't have a flybar locking device in order to make readings or adjustments.

Also, my Beam E4's main mast has a built in 10 degree forward cant while at rest on the skids. I assume that I still must make all adjustments on blade angles with against a flybar that is 90 degrees to the mast.

Also please comment! My gyro is mounted on the frame...which is 0 degrees (parallel with the deck) when on skids... Would it be better to give my gyro a 10 degree forward stay in perfect alignment with the mast?

Thank you,

One video on how to use a pitch gauge.

As for your other questions, someone else will have to chime in. I'm too new to this hobby to comment on anything else.
