In the process of setting up Raptor 50SE. The manual indicates Pitch Scale numbers for the Molded Pitch Scale on the left side of the frame. (+11, +5.5, -2, -5, -10).

Raptor Technique gives different numbers for the same positions (+12, +6, 0, -4, -9).

My question: Which is correct? Is the center position 0 or -2?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I would lean torwards 0 in the middle, but it all depends on how you like to fly and what you are used to having the middle pitch curve position at. best of luck,

I would use a pitch gauge, and forget the thing on the frames.

If you can fly then go for +-10 degrees. If this is your first heli and your just learning then try +10 and -4.

Thanks to all, I was just going to use the molded scale for initial adjustments and complete final with a pitch guage. But, I was not sure of the scale accuracy.
This is not my first heli, but it is my first Raptor.

My Setup is:

R50SE
GY401 w/S9254
OS Hyper 50
JR 9303 w/8311's
Maverick Blades
