Hi Bob, thanks for the time and effort for putting together these great videos. If you are still putting together more videos for this heli, can you maybe do a video on how to setup the pitch angle as well? I find that for these small helis (Gaui200 / Trex 250), I really have a difficult time getting zero degrees at mid-stick. Reason is that if i move the flybar at the slightest bit, my pitch angle will give a different reading on the pitch gauge. Somehow, this does not happen with the 450-size helis.

So, i am not sure if the method you explained previously in setting up the pitch angle for the 450 sized heli is applicable on the 200 size as well. If there is a better method, it would be great if you could show it to us. Also, i don't quite understand how the 'protractor method' works in the Gaui200 manual.

Once again, thanks for helping in creating these valuable videos!
Cheers!

I guess you didn't watch the head setup video?

I go over that and show how to lock the flybar and use the pitch guage.

I think I would put a small piece of fuel tubing on the tail shaft between the tail case and slider. Trim it to length so the tail blades cant flip over. I know you can set the throw but I would like a little safety backup. Just a thought...

Hi Bob, sorry I haven't watched the head setup vid when i type the message. I have just watched it and saw how you locked the flybar with the allen key. Pls pardon my ignorance.

Once again, thanks for the great information!

I noticed on the setup video that Bob has nice pitch gauge with respective range for this small bird.
Have a question, where I can buy this tool and what brand is it?
