I have been flying my Blade CP fine for about a month, and I got fed up with buying new blades, so I bought some carbon fiber ones. Now I can't get it to lift off. I think the pitch is messed up. I've read that you are supposed to change the pitch links. How long should these be?

Thanks

Kyle

I don't know if it's so much changing them as adjusting them.

You need to make sure that you have 0 degrees at mid stick (idle up) and then +/- 11 or 12 degrees at each end of the stick.

Adjusting the pitch is covered fairly well in the manual starting on page 30. Also be sure to follow up with a tracking adjustment as changing the pitch will likely affect the tracking. Tracking is the very next section in the manual.

Just a quick question... When you move the throttle up, are the blades supposed to tilt in opposite directions?

No - you have something wrong with the linkages in the head assembly.

Post pictures of both sides of the head (blades pointing to your right and left when taking the picture)...

first of all carbon fiber blade upgrade is ridiculous a stock brushed motor doesn't have the power to spin them. And they will warp main shaft go back to woodies and learn not to crash. That being said like tutelar-rc said post some picks but sounds like you may have a mixer link bassackwards.

No Really I am the club President!!!
