Hi Folks,
I just wanted to check before I adjusted the push rods,
I have this Raptor 90 Quick Uk head on my turbine which is newly acquired.
I am setting up the pitch curve, remembering the swash direction on Raptor 90 goes down for pitch not up like most helicopters.

I have at
bottom stick +2
Mid Stick +6
Top Stick +11

My Normal scale curve is - 3 + 5 +10 ( I take off mid stick)

I have setup my swash AFR at +50, I could go to +60 but then 4 servos start binding at extremes.

So just to refresh my memory in the photo I am pointing at, I guess to add more negative pitch I need to lengthen these 2 rods ? ( swash goes down for + pitch and up to add negative)

My radio is Futaba 10C

Its been ages since I have had to setup pitch curve so I just wanted to ensure before I did.

Thanks for anyhelp

Matt

All The Best

adjust your rods to get the 1 degree in pitch that suits your normal set up
there is no need to alter the radio
keep things simple

Thanks Dave,

I guessed that, I wanted to know if the rods I adjust are the 2 I am pointing to, which I suppose they are as nothing else is going from swash to blades.

All The Best

yes you can adjust that rod or the ones fixed to the other side of the mixing arm to alter the pitch
