I know I saw it somewhere but now I can't find it. What is the maximum useful pitch for symmetrical blades on rex 450. I think I remember 11 degrees.
Also to increase pitch by a comfortable margin should I extend the three servo links or the two small pitch links (mixer arms to blades)
This is for a small camera lift so absoulutly no 3D and forget any auto's.

Any comments ???

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I have only gotten around 12-13 degrees max on the pitch before the washout hits the bottom of the head at full stick.

One rule to remember is that you can get more lift with less pitch using higher head speed, things really need to be balanced perfictly for AP use. There are simi-symmetrical blades out but don't know where.

Ignorance is the absence of facts.Stupid is lacking the intellectual capacity to comprehend the fact

On my 450 3200 Hs I go with +/- 12. I keep this dialed down in the swash menu on the Dx7. This way I am not using the whole 12 degrees. It is all based on Head speed Just like TomRex says...
I set mine up to give me the amount of pop I want as per the head speed on each of my stunt modes.
