Lightning Tri Blade 450 size - need factory linkage length
I bought one of these used and the three linkages were changed. Can someone please provide me the factory recommended linkage length? Mine come out about 58.5mm center to center.
Thanks very much.

Correct
I just checked mine and the length you have is fine.... mine are 58.0

On your set up, these should give you approx low -2, mid stick +4-5, high +8

If you are not running a mixer, set your cg so that the rear of the skids come up 3/4 to 1" before the front lifts off the table...

Good luck and have fun.... Stan

Thankyou. The CG issue has been an issue for me. I was wondering why I've been having trouble with getting my heli off the ground without falling over itself. Thanks again.
