Has anyone tried the main blade grips with the links rigged in the trailing position as described in the instructions?

Are you refering to the Caliber 30 standard mix? or the head flip for the c30?

Not the mixer. The heli is engineered so it can be rigged with the main blade grip pitch arms [ the ball link arm ] in the leading position [ as shipped ] or in the trailing position. In the trailing position the pitch arms end up as in Wayne Mann's "grip flip" mod, but without the changes to the fly bar control arms, the washout mod or the links lenght adjustments. So the question, has anyone tried it?

Trailing Pitch Arm

Hello Wayne---- Your right. I had only checked the collective movement, and its correct-- but--- the cyclic movement is backwards to a given input.. Pretty thorough of you. Strange the designer would not catch this and put out instructions that this is an alternate rigging. Maybe they are laughing under their breath at us.

I also would not reccommend this as the arf setting position is very stable and the C30 hovers very well as is.

d-n-jensen---- Didn't ask for your recommendation, only if you had tried it.
