Is there a place where all the swashplate dimensions are posted to calculate the cyclic gain for tha V-Bars?

I did a rough estimating of my T-Rex 500 swashplate, but my T250 is already set-up and I'm too lazy to disassemble the head to measure the swahplate. I think everyone could benefit from such a database.

I think if you use the preset from the V-bar program you can get pretty close on the cyclic gain. Then just adjust it up or down to your liking. That is what I have done to all of my V-bar helis.

I have never measured a swashplate when setting up a FBL heli.

No need to disassemble Measure from the end of ball to the mainshaft.

Distance Measure - ball diameter / 2 + mainshaft width / 2 = distance
from center shaft to center ball

Example:

31.5mm - 3mm/2 (1.5mm) + 10mm/2 (5mm) = 35mm

Clear as mud??? Weird math problem huh??
