While digital gauges will get you pretty much spot on (I've setup many helicopters with a digital gauge and everyone tracked perfectly), if you think that trying for that last bit of alignment in the tracking is going to pay off in dividends, don't use electrical tape, use reflective tape like the ones provided with Fun-Key and Rotor Tech blades. I had a bit of trouble with getting narrow scale Spin Blades to track spot on and this was how I verified tracking. As always, set one blade as the master and adjust the others to it. Another very simple method is to place rods that perfectly fit the blade grip holes and set the turnbuckles to have the rod aligned to the main shaft. That works fairly reliably in a pinch if your digital drains out its battery. Take care.

Oh, and while turnbuckle adjustment is mentioned, I use the Team Lose turnbuckle adjuster which will duplicate the length of a turnbuckle all day long with no worrying if you got your calipers in the right spot. Take care.
