Heli freak.com and the blade 400 forum are the best places to go.
I have been able to find all the info needed to help me with my 400.
I would just like to thank everyone that is a part of this forum from newbie to old pro you all make it possible to get into this hobby and have fun with it.
Now if it would just worm up some so I could do some flying .
-28c here -35c with the wind

Those are great videos. Some very good info there.

I tried to download the high-res videos so I could play them back on my laptop while I'm working on my machine but when I click on the download option all it does is play the video.

Dumb question here.
When you use a pitch gauge on the 400 what are the differences in blade pitch settings for 'normal' and 'stunt'?

My 400 has all positive pitches with mid stick about plus 5.

sounds like your head is not setup properly

u can set normal any way u want with pitch curves

but normally set to -3 at low 0 at mid and +10 at full pos
for stunt its usually set to +10 0 -10

I did the same thing for setting up my heli.

There are high res copies of the videos here that you can download.

http://www.viddler.com/explore/sokal/videos/

You have to sign up for the site first but it's free.

Have signed up but I cannot get the files to download.
Ive tried original and flash downloads, a new window opens and the video just plays with no other options to save.
Any ideas ?

Many thanks.

I don't know what the main problem was but I tried it on a different pc and it worked.

Thanks Sokal for the time you spent making these videos.
