Ok, excuse my noob-ness, but I have to ask these questions. I’m learning to set up my heli for myself. Yes, I’ve got some local help that has been incredibly patient w/ me, but I’ve gotta figure this out and be able to do it on my own.
I’m trying to set up my blades and pitch and throttle curves. This may get long, sorry I’m so anal.
I’m trying to set up my R50v2. When installing my cyclic servo I initially set my end points to 100%, centered my trims and sub trim and reset my pitch curve to low, inh, 50, inh, 100. Then centered my stick and got the servo arm damn close to 90 deg with the link arm. This is one point where I get a little confused…if I’m using a pitch gauge do I really need to worry about where the pitch arm on the heli is pointing to w/ regards to the built in pitch gauge on the heli itself? At this point, w/ the stick centered the built in gauge is pointed to about 5 deg. Does everything sound right so far?
Then, w/ my blades lined up w/ the tail boom I put my pitch gauge near the end of my blade, leveled my fly bar and if I’m reading it right the gauge right I’m getting -10 at the bottom and +10 at the top. I forgot to check the mid. Anyway, I obviously don’t want or need that much range right now. And to get my servo arm and link to line up I had to do a couple twists and set my end points to like 116 and 119. So now I assume I can use my pitch curve to adjust this travel right? Any suggestions or pointers for me? Have I done things right so far? Please suggest corrections as needed. Thank you!!

No, but it should be damn close. pitch gauge is true. arms and plastic knotches are not.
At this point, w/ the stick centered the built in gauge is pointed to about 5 deg. Does everything sound right so far?
dont pay attention to plastic knotches. read pitch gauge

in normal mode, if you are a newb, you want to have -4, 0, 10 in normal mode, and -10,0,10 in idleup one on that heli.
I had to do a couple twists and set my end points to like 116 and 119.
good job dude, they will never be dead even, so its ok.

Id say so. goto raptortechnique for tutorials.

good luck dude.

I have been using RT extensively. That site was worth its weight in gold during my build process. But I didn't quite find the direction I was looking for in setting my blades up. But it sounds like I'm on the right track.
Here's another question then...I've read in different places that the flybar on the Raptors does not HAVE to be level when using a pitch gauge, so what would happen if you didn't line up to the flybar, but instead put a small level on top of the pitch gauge itself and used that to sight to? Would that work? Thanks all,

a newbies 2 cents, until I you get over the pushing throttle all the way down in a panic situation, I would not put much negative pitch, I still on occasions do that, so that is why my bottom pitch is only at -1, until I control that natural instinct I will leave mine at -1


pitches are like atttitudes, everybody has one
