I have always measured collective pitch in my setups but never have measured cyclic pitch. I have been hearing a lot more about it and i was just curious on how you would go about measuring for that. I would assume it like collective but do you measure with blades over the nose or out to one side. Just want to know for my Information. Also whats a good range. I have a Trex 700 with 8717's on cyclic to give a small clue on my setup

Trying not to put them in the dirt.

You can read entire post, but jsenicka had some good input that helped me understand, as well as setup.

Set collective to 0

Set the blades 90 degrees to the frame (flybar aligned with center of boom) and give full elevator both ways and measure the pitch.

Set the blades straight out and back and do the same thing with aileron.

Adjust swash mix for equal throws. Look for around 8 degrees for beating on her, less for scale or smooth flight.
