1. I was watching Finless Bob's CCPM part 2 video and he goes into it leveling out the head...well I pretty much have everything level in my t-rex 450 and in the next step in his video he puts a bubble level on the flybar paddle to check movement between high pitch and low pitch, my question is...he says he makes his adjustment in the end points within the radio....what is endpoints? Only endpoints I can think of is the throttle/pitch curves....is he talking about the travel adjust page within the radio?

2. And one more question kinda related to this video, I noticed that my righthand servo when I put my left stick at full negative and my right stick at full forward and full right (so it's in the right hand corner) my servo arm comes in contact with my main gear...VERY BAD....how can I fix that? I haven't come across a video where it says what I can do to fix that without having to mess with my travel adjustment.

I'm using the DX7....so what your saying is set my servo arm to where it's not touching my main gear first by using the atv's and then re-level my swashplate and work my way up the ladder?

ok it needs to be about 14mm out from the center of the ball to the center of the screw that holds the arm on you will have to move it in one hole and cut off the third hole asm lons as it about 14mm out

okay, i'll check it here...I just went into my travel adjustment screen of my dx7 and changed my PIT. down to 75% on the low side so now it clears my main gear....I rechecked my leveling in my swashplate and head and also checked to see what my pitch of my blades are and it all looks the same....could it be that easy? But yeah, I'll check to see what my servo arm is and see if it's at 13.5mm...thanks
