There is an app called RC-Heli-Pitch for Android in Google Play store.

It uses your tablet/phone camera to take a picture at maximum pitch, with the blades folded 90 degrees, like a scissor, and will calculate the angle for you, after your set the blade length (120 mm).

Thanks, but the math is so easy

D1 = distance for blade 1 to table
D2 = distance for balde 2 to table

BL = Blade length is actual 123 mm

A = ABS((D1 - D2)/2)

angle = arcsin(A/BL)

so to get 10 deg you need a distance for 42.7174 mm between the blades.

Its a easy calculation

Here is a quick dirty table

| angle | distance in mm (A) |
