What is everyone running for their collective, elevator and aileron. Right now I have -12/12 deg on collective and -7/7deg on the rest.

+- 12 collective and +-7 cyclic should be fine. I have about the same collective range and I think I have 8 degrees on my cyclic deflection. Roll rate is really quick and I am at a mile high.

I have been trying to figure out how to get +/-14. I am at +/-12 and the swashplate travel is pretty much maxed out. Maybe I can get it to move a little lower, but the corners are already binding. However, 12 is enough for now, just wondering how 14 is done.

You can get +/- 14 degrees of pitch change. At the lower extreme, you cannot get cyclic input without interference.

I just level the fybar out to the side 90 deg and then put my pitch gauge on the blades....give full right and full left. You can do the same when you have the flybar level running lengthwise with the blades at 90 deg. That will be for your fore an aft cyclic.

You must center collective , pitch gauge the blades with full elevator/aileron deflection. Check elevator w/ blades w/ the boom , aileron w/ blades 90 dgrees to boom. I run 14/-14 w/ 7 on cyclic

Running +/- 15 pitch with metal grips....I was at 14, then when I put the metal grips on and checked I was at 15?!?!?!? Said screw it, and flew it

With 8.5 I think on max control deflection. (I didn't check someone asked and then they checked it...I think they said 8.5...But he thought it was a bunch. I just cranked the throws to max without binding and called it a day.)

Now, the gauge could be off...I don't normally care what they say as long as the +/- match. I leave the gauge set and then flip it upside down to check the negative throws...Then leave it set and move to the other side.

440 mm with Stubz and the weights in...Thinking of taking them off.

You should have seen the guy who read the pitch gauge...He asked if I was going to fly it that way, and when I told him yes...he shook his head and walked for cover

So are people with high pitch range (-+12/13/14/15degrees) just living with the fact that at the pitch extremes you are getting binding on the swash when applying cyclic?

Cheers

You hardly ever hit full collective pitch so in reality you are just advancing the pitch into a tighter range around the stick.
