12 ish. Although I find this is overkill and I usually scale it down in curves. I mechanically set up as 12. Then I'll dial in 10 thru 12, using pitch curves, as needed for responsiveness. I like it to move, but not be oversensitive. 11 is kind of a sweet spot.

I've run more. But it gets sensitive. The key on blowouts is you don't use all your pitch unless you are already moving very fast. Punching in 15 degrees from a standstill will blow our your tail and bog. But once it's moving you can do it. Especially if you are doing a traveling forward flip type maneuver...you may even want it for that. Anything less than max pitch and it'll be like running into a brick wall for a forward traveling flip.

I personally don't do enough of these maneuvers to care. It is worth the lost energy that 10 or 11 gives to get a softer collective.

Pitch degree numbers are irrelevant. Fly your heli and adjust to what feels best for you. Try and make the same feel for up right and inverted. You might get it flying great and the gauge reads 12+ and
- 11.5. Adjust to make it fly the best.

+1.

And along with that...don't worry about what "the other guy" is doing, even if that other guy is your protégé or idol. So many folks run 15 because so-and-so does and end up with a touchy bird and they can't get the best out of it.

Depends on headspeed too guys. Much less than 14 available on each side with low(er) rpm set ups can be a real adventure.

Conversely, the best pilots like Nick Maxwell use easily that much at conventional speeds but their management of it is so perfect that you'll rarely hear the head load.

I have changed head speed, pitch, expo and piro rate over the years to what feels best. Again the numbers are not important. Adjust to what feels good for you. I do use an educated guess with a pitch gauge as where to start.

13 degrees during setup then adjust by feel to suit the heli and head speed.

13 for fun, 12 for practice/precision.

This should not happen, something else isn't right in your setup. C'mon WC you've been flying helis long enough now and are no stranger to this forum!

60% of the time, it works every time!

+/- 13-15° setup and then season to taste.

I set up the radio for 10/10 usually, During the mechanical set up I adjust for swash height for = pitch ranges. I don't see any advantages for me to use more pitch

anyone try using throttle mixes?

I set 13 up and down at setup. Then fly and see what it feels like.

I set up all mine to 13 +/- and then adjust the pitch curve to soften it out a bit. I like it to be smooth around center but have the punch at the high ends. Almost like adding some expo to the pitch curve. #collectivemanagement!
