I been trying to beat this dog for years, i set my pitch up and it never works out right. I use a swashplate level tool that gives u the 0 degree point at midstick, then I adjust all my links up to the pitch links to get 0 pitch in blades but this is were it gets goofy when I put a level on the grip and take blade pitch its not zero, then if i adjust it so pitch guage shows zero the grip is not level. Shouldnt a carbon blade be 0 degree if the grip is level. in this case im using G5 mavrick blades.
Do the blades have a washout in them or is my robart pitch guage off.

thats another point my robart never seems to match up when i use the cheap plastic pitch guage that u just level with the fly bar.

There is an easier way to do this. Slide a hex driver through the grip bolt hole and line it up with the mainshaft and then the grip HAS to be 0 degrees. This is with the flybar level of course. Yes our blades have washout.

Blades have a symmetrical profile. It's the blades that create the lift, not the holders, so measure the pitch of the blades.

I don't know the Mavricks you use, but SAB, Radix & NHP all have bolt holes perpendicular to the blade root.

Yes, I too always back it up with a check of blade pitch.
