Ok guys I have a few of problems,
1. The tail motor screws that I got from like90 are too small to hold my edp50 DD tail motor to the boom got any other ideas?
2. My swash is coming apart duing collective inputs while I am setting it up. Do I need to glue the bearing in with loctite or ca or something?

3. I have did a search and cannot get anything other than add pitch lower pitch and not enough pitch. What are some numbers for setting the pitch on these things I want a 3 d setup and it seems that I am getting about 11 or 12 on top and about -6 or 7 What is a good starting point. I would just fly it and set it but how much neg do they need for aerobatics I do not want to find out that I didn't have enough the hard way!

For the tail all i did was dremel out the stock hole a little and then used two zip ties to hold it in place. It has worked so far. As for the collective do you have the aluminum head or the stock plastic one. To get more pitch out of the head you have to dremel/file out part of the alum. head. I know there is a topic on that with pictures. Can't really help on the - pitch curves i haven't 3d mine yet.

dremel the head to get about 24 degree total.
then adjust to your liking.

I'm not flying 3d so i just adjusted my pitch curves so that at the bottom it does not come apart. I believe a few other people have jb welded or glued the bearing in place. Once the head is dremeled out it should stop pulling the bearing out of place.
