What is the max cyclic pitch that can be run on a Sceadu? Mine was feeling kind of mushy so I checked and I only had 4 degrees cyclic pitch. I have reset it and can get about 5.5 degrees with my elevator servo ATV's at 100 and Aileron at 140 on a 9CHP w/ 9202's. All of the balls are at 13mm from the center, and parallel. Is this normal, OK? Any way to sharpen it up more? I am only running the lead weights in the paddles.
Thanks!

use longer ball on the swash plate

on the mixing arms attached to the seesaw move the ball to the inner hole
that should be close to 2 more degrees

I have moved the balls on the mixing arms into the inner holes. I can now get about 6 deg. cyclic. When you say to use the longer ball on the swash plate, are you referring to using them for the mixing arms or washout? I have adjusted the mixing rods for max pitch on the mains (~ +11 ~ -10 degrees) Now how do the inner and outer holes on the washout arm affect things?
Thanks!

Cut the lead down in size. I removed abour 25% and it was noticable. The lead has to be uugghh BANGed out after this mod.

on the swash use the same size balls on the whole thing...the longer ones (2530-005). you can flip over the seesaw itself and put the mixing arms in the inner holes closer to the main mast..... like mentioned in the freya manual but not the Sceadu's. I was flying with no weight in the paddles for a while, now I have MA white paddles...sorry I can't tell you how much better they are b/c I didn't fly for a few months before I put them on and don't remember exactly what the stock paddles were like.

I found an older post where I explained better: "Flip the seesaw over.....step 13 it tells you to put the mixing arms on the long hole. Take it apart and flip the seesaw and put the arms in the short hole."

I now see texmurphy already answered about the swash balls but will leave what I wrote.
