New to nitro with this Raptor 30v2 w/OS37, how should I set up the pitch? I have been fling the T-Rex for a while with the pitch 0 at center stick and hovering at 3/4 stick. The Raptor instruction want around 6 degrees at center stick, just seems a little weird (if I'm understanding it all correctly).

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

0 pitch at center is my recommendation. That is where it is going to be anyway in idle up.

Pitch settings are somewhat a personal thing, and depend on how you intend to fly the model.

A 0 degree center and equal amounts of throw positive and negative is common for 3D setups. My scale machine is setup at zero midstick, -6 and +11 degrees for the style of flying and the limits of the body.

I try to keep the feel and pitch ranges the same for all my models as much as I can with out running into limiting factors such as my scale not allowing enough room to get all the throw I want.

Fly it like you stole it!

Before I got rid of it my 30 (v1 os32)I was running 0 at center and +11 and -11,I put an mp5 50 on it and that little motor actually made power at 2100 HS.

I would disregard the Raptor manual and pitch scale on the chassis. Set it up just as you did your rex. If your rex is mechanical mixing than it will be almost exactly the same for the Raptor. If not, it goes like this:
1. set collective arm so that the washout arms are parallel at mid stick.(swash should be around the halfway point of it's travel)
2. Adjust long pitch links to bring the mixing levers horizontal.(while maintaining horizontal on the flybar carrier)
3. Adjust short links to bring the grips to 0 pitch.
4. Adjust ATV on collective servo to provide equal pos/neg pitch at full pos/neg stick. Mark 1 grip and take pitch reading from it. (this will be your master grip)
5.Hover and adjust tracking on the slave grip (the one without the mark).
Obviously this is the short version, but should get you flying with the same feel as your trex.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

go out to all.
