The Avro comes (as standard) with a number of head options. These range from super stable to very responsive.

The option you choose then dictates how the bearings are placed on the feathering spindle, which way round the blade grips are mounted and of course the mixing ratio...

This is all covered in the setup guide that's downloadable from the Blitz website.

When setup for 3D, the grips are leading edge plus a couple of other differences from a stable or FAI setup.

A leading edge grip means the blade pitch is reduced slightly when the blade flaps.
That makes the cyclic less agile.

My R90's leading edge

It doesn’t matter if Delta-3 = 0’

only its a few degrees on the R90! I wonder if I can make my Rappi more agile by using longer grip posts, making Delta-3 = 0’.

That's something very subtle the pro's might do and you'd never know about unless they told you.

I went to Muncie today and Spoke with Dave Fisher today for a little while. Class act fellow. He helped with the design of the Avro as well.

you managed to understand us British then

Your right Dave is a really nice guy, has taught a lot of people in his time myself included..

A very passionate flyer and loves the hobby, he runs his own flying school which is very successful judging by the waiting times for a lesson with him..

What i like is he can fly all disciplines but hasnt forgot about beginners, and will help you set your hellie according to your flying ability. As i have seen many turn up to my club with a model setup by the shop and it will have 12 0 -12 range making it really hard for a beginner to learn to hover..

Dave wanted to make the avro flexible for any type of flyer, and having owned one i can say whole heartedly it has lived up to that expectation.. it is a machine that can progress with your flying.. without the need to upgrade...

Matt

All The Best
