Default Control Setup Question

Hi all,


Maybe a stupid question, but can someone please confirm which direction the swash moves when increasing pitch (positive)?



The manual says the swash moves UP for positive and DOWN for negative. I spent hours trying to figure out if I had mis-assembled something to make mine the opposite. Mine moves DOWN for + and UP for -. Flies great, but I can't find anything wrong with my reassembly of the head and swash.


Am I missing something?



Thanks in advance.

It should move down for positive pitch and move up for negative pitch. Double check your blade angles and your blade grips where the ball links connect. If they connect on the Leading edge side then you will need to reverse the set-up.

Thanks for the response. Looks like the manual is completely wrong. It says this as part of the pre flight check. I'm pretty sure I did it, but this seems the only possible way to set it up.



I've since learned about trailing vs leading edge control and so it makes sense since the 330x is trailing edge controlled.
