What is the easiest way to measure how many degrees of aileron and elevator you have?

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Use the pitch gauge.

Put your collective at center stick (zero pitch).

For Aileron..

Turn head so main blades run length of heli. The flybar should be across heli and the flybar paddles will have no pitch in them.

Put pitch guage on main blade at front of heli.

Put aileron all the way over left or right. Blades should pitch but not flybar paddles.

Make sure flybar is level and then align with pitch gauge to get degrees.

Do the same for elevator except put the main blades across the heli, the flybar with length of heli and apply forward or aft elevator.

Thanks, That's the way I thought it should be done. On an other site that shell go nameless, they were trying it say you measure the pitch change of the fly-bar paddles.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

This is the way I have always done it. I think that if you set it by the paddles to say 6 degrees (12 degrees total from one extreme to the other), you would have very slow response.

With my blades at 6, my gauge will not even measure the pitch on the paddles.

Cyclic is ALWAYS mesured at the main blades, not the paddles. +/- 6 degrees of cyclic at the main blade is more than enough cyclic to do anything that you want to do!
