I can't get more than +-10 in idle up, but the normal mode looks good.

Only in one direction. If I raise/lower my swash mix, it will only effect one pitch direction. I may gain 2 to equal +12, but I will loose 2 to equal -8. I could be wrong. I'm still learning, but that's what I've seen during bench testing.

I dont know if these is relevant or had anything to do but I found these, he claims that with these set up it can be done.(keep in mind I only get 1/2 of it Im new , just trying to help!)
A friend of mine and others on forums said it was alright and that it was no where near the Trex 450. So about 3 weeks ago I picked one up to see what it was all about. Out of the box this Helicopter will fly great. Flying 3D however is a different story. I immediately threw on some Hitec 65HB's for swash servos, grabbed a Futaba 9257 Tail servo, changed the stock pinion gear (motor gear) to an 11th. To top it off I bolted on a set of Curtis Young Blood Radix blades, carbon fiber stabilizers and went for a fly. As you can see in the photos the throw has been modified, in fact the servos are mounted backwards to achieve maximum throw with the servo arms. The Blade 400 manual states in can throw 10 +/- for pitch. I squeezed roughly 12 +/- with this setup. the head speed maintains very well for the motor has more torque with the larger gear. I completed what I set out to do, and proved many wrong! many could not believed that it was a blade 400! This helicopter will fly extreme 3D well. The roll rate is excellent, and the tail holds well. Remember it only has the E-Flite 110 gyro, and I impressed with it for the $60 or so it costs. Conclusion: This helicopter is excellent,

I dont suffer from mental iIlness, I actually enjoy mine!

Well, using a pitch gauge isn't an exact science.

I had to flip my mixer arms and do a whole lot messing around with collective endpoints to get +12-12. It really dosen't do alot though. I don't think I've gotten to the point where I'll even use +10 -10 just guaging by how far I move the gimball in flight. It sure seems to bog the head alot though. I bought some different tooth pinion gears but haven't gotten around to experimenting. I would say don't worry about it. Next time I set up I'm gonna go for the 10 10 and be happy with it.

with 2 ears and 1 mouth you should listen twice as much as you talk
