When you set the pitch on the blades what you do is allocate a master blade,
Once set you never touch the adjustment of this blade again,
If you need to track the blades you use the other blade either adjust it up or down untill it tracks.
put a little red tracking tape on this blade so you can see whether it is high or low.
Use the links attached to the blade grips for adjustment, or if you need a finer adjustment use the link that comes from the swash to the pitch lever for that side.
Sometimes if your tracking is in and out you normally find the fethering spindle is bent, And as it rotates the tracking will change

Hope this helps

The world is round you can run but you will always end up where you started from

For initial setup, for coarse adjustment, use short link at blade grip; for fine adjustment, use long link at pitch lever. If tracking goes in and out, can be bent feather shaft, loose head linkage, or bad blades. My experience has been that if properly adjusted blades suddenly begin to have tracking problems, I have something around head coming loose.

It seems I have to adjust the tracking after EVERY crash. I didnt think balancing the blades was a big issue but have since learned that this will help greatly with the tracking... I agree also with designating a primary blade and working just one blade until your tracking is perfect.
