Reseting up my Mini after a crash....I'm currently at +-10 pitch. During initial setup I had to lower the pitch setting in the swash menu in the radio to get this....at factory settings, it was closer to +-12 degrees.

I am currently running only stock woodies and at +-10 degrees, climbing out of inverted isn't as quick as I'd like compared to the CF blades.

Anyone here running higher pitch settings?
What was your pitch range with linkages set out of the box?

Thanks everyone!

I had -13+11 degrees when initally built, with the link balls the recommended 12.5mm out on the servo arms, using HS-65HB servos, all ATVs 100. I moved the main shaft down a bit to get it +-12 degrees.

The notch in the main shaft for the top lock ring set screw is wide enough that with the set screw almost tight, you can move the shaft up & down. So when re-installing the shaft, you could end up with your pitch range changed.

Now I make sure the bottom of the shaft is flush with the bottom of the lower lock ring when re-installing the shaft, and then the pitch range is consistent.

With Radix blades, I'm using +-10 degrees, the full +12 only in hold.
