Completed the head setup yesterday +/-11°, phasing set, all looks good. Still have good phasing pin engagement at full positive, about 1/16">. Noticed that the swash needed to be reversed for the trailing grip (stable) setup. Swash goes down for positive blade angle of attack. Some subtrim was needed during setup but overall very pleased.
What has folks been using for paddle angle, 6°?
Comments welcome.

I never measure the paddle angles. I do sometimes look at the
amount of cyclic pitch at the blades and on the Avro, with
the head setup in 'stable' configuration mine is getting
something like 6 degrees of cyclic.

I thought this was going to result in fairly sluggish
response but was pleasantly surprised to find the
cyclics feel very quick despite not having massive
throws.

I have 9 degree of cyclic and I am using Align F3c paddles, very smooth. Also use Flybarless main blades and My head set up is sports/3D

Just to add; I'm using Rotortech paddles and small weights
which at the moment are all the way out and need to come in
a bit as the flybar is slightly less responsive than it should
be (getting slight drifting in the direction of the wind so
lightening the flybar should correct this).

My Idle-up 1 headspeed is probably around 1750 but that's
just a guess as I tached it a while back when I was at
1900 and I setup my idle-up1 a bit lower and left the
idle-up2 at 1900.
