Ok Sokal, you need to get your priorities straight big guy. Do you want a day job? A family? A life? Or do you want to make B400 vids?

Just kidding of course. I greatly appreciate all your efforts. But I was watching the two vids on head set up, and at the end of part two, you say something about the next one... Ok.. Where is the next one. We are reading/watching them faster than you can make them. So get off your butt and get with it soldier!

Thank you.

Hello, I'm new to Heli's and posting. I have two B400's and I was checking the pitch of the blade and at center stick I'm up +3 and full stick I'm up +14 and no stick I'm at about 0 pitch. it is that way on booth of them. Also in stunt mode I'm at -5 and +14.
Do I need to ajust them to be -10 and +10 like the book says?
Thanks for the Videos and help. AT

Default Need Help on B400

Hello, I'm new to Heli's and posting. I have two B400's and I was checking the pitch of the blades (all stock) and at center stick I'm up +3 and full stick I'm up +14 and no stick I'm at about -6 pitch. it is that way on booth of them. Also in stunt mode I'm at -5 and +14.
Do I need to ajust them to be -10 and +10 like the book says?
Thanks for the Videos and help. AT

its best to have the head setup in that manor of +10/-10 in stunt
in normal if u use the stock pitch curve then it should be -3/+10

stock pitch curve 0-40-50-75-100

Thanks for the help!!!
So the +14 is to high, right?
So I guess I need to ajust the pitch of the blades.
That is the way both of them came.

Thanks, AT

Sokal, thanks heaps for your vids.

I am a complete and utter and total newbie to RC Heli's.

You answered that the adjustment was mechanical but that it was also possible to do with TX trim.

Please excuse this really really really dumb Q, but am I correct in assuming it is aileron trim you adjust? :o
