Default PItch settings

Looks like the linkages to blade grips are same fix onces on mcpx, so pitch setting or setting zero at midstick must be done by rotating the servo links. I never measure pitch settings on mcpx or having to set it to zero. Wonder if this is going to be pain here. Wonder if RC Logger digital pitch gauge can fit this.

Just put couple of bolts, toothpicks, or whatever round bodied straight edge that fits into the bolt holes on the grips as your guides and adjust away. Simple really.

The RC logger weighs more than a MCPX, its way to heavy for a heli this small.

As its FBL you really dont need to be to anal about it, get the swash eyeball-level and then fold both blades to one side, if they are parallel you have 0 pitch, or close enough for this sort of heli. Pitch range I would do like a MCPX, as much as it can handle without bogging too much (or as much as you need for your flying). Precise numbers are not really needed.
