Can I get some measurements for my Logo 6003D? Swash links... The manual has them with 15mm thread showing but this is too short, (the blade grip links are at 45mm). The swash sits too low with these dimensions from the manual. I have a lot of negative collective ant center stick (JR11X). I have the new full size Vbar and Futaba BLS451 servos with Mikado arms. I am doing the setup now and just want to make sure I havent screwed up somewhere else before I lenghten the links, thanks.

P.S. got to watch Kyle fly a Trex 450 with Vbar and Mikado head at the AMA convention, unreal baby!

Just put the swash at center, the grips at zero pitch, build the links to suit. I will try and measure mine later

Like Ron said, the goal is to have the swash in the middle of its vertical travel range with the stick at 1/2, and then the links going up to the blade grips set so the blades are at zero pitch.

The lengths given in the instructions are a starting point only. Our models traditionally have to have both the swash links, and the links going to the head lengthened out a mm or two to get things where they belong.

(P.S. back to husafreak): Wish one of the media types would have been at the AMA Expo. Kyle and Jesse Kavros did their second demo as a tandem flight. Two V-Bar converted 450's at supersonic head speeds, being flown aggressively in tandem inside a convention center meeting room was pretty fun But alas, no video that I know of

Yeah, Jesse flies great too, I got a chance to thank the boys (but not you) in person. I will adjust my links accordingly.
