I'm setting up a base model Radikal 30 with the plastic blade grips and I can only seem to get 10 +/- degrees of pitch. I have the mixer arms on the 3d settings and the Align 610 servos set up for 100% throw on my Futaba 12 FGH radio.
If I add any more servo throw the mixer base will hit the bottom of the head block.
Am I doing something wrong?
Are any of you guy's able to get any more pitch than 10 degrees?

I've got everything squared and zeroed at mid stick.

If I were a betting man, I would put $100 on .... You do not have the elevator A Arm centered. It is tear drop shaped. So it should not be "flat on top" when it is centered. I go over this in the 20 build videos.

sorry I don't know the heli well,, "yet",, I have not ordered mine yet, so I can not comment on the Control System below the Swash,

but I do know the Head, if James is not correct look at your Bell Mixers, and make sure the Collective Linkage (s) from the Swash is connected to the Short Ball on the Bell Mixer (s),

but lets hope James will not have to pay me that $100 heehe hee
