I am having some problems with the tail drifting. The manual is confusing with the starting point for the tail blade pitch offset. Can someone measure the distance between the tailbox and the round pitch change part in mm when the servo is centered?

hover the heli in NON HH mode, figure out which way the heli is drifting and either shorten/lengthen the ball link ends to compensate, or slide the servo mount on the boom to compensate. thats eaier than measuring, chances are it would still drift!

I am just looking for the rough estimate to get me in the ballpark. I disassembled the tail and don't remember where it was before. The manual is kind of confusing as what they have in the drawings would put the pitch slider all the way out.

On mine the center of the ball is about 6.7mm from the rear of the tail case. Hope This helps.

When setting up the evo from scratch, I usually just get the servo arm at 90 degrees in normal mode (Assuming a heading hold gyro), then set the tail pitch lever thatthe end part where the ball link goes on is parallel to the edge of the tail case.

Then start the heli and in normal mode on the gyro, set the trim mechanically on the rod until the heli sits still.

Then switch to HH and fly.

PS - make sure that there is no binding etc on the rod as well as on the slider.

Cheers
Marc
