Default Raptor G2 Pitch

My heli will barely lift off at almost full throttle. I have tried everything in about wetting the pitch but none seems to work. When I turn on dip#10 and unhook the motor and plug everything up the V1 knob doesnt change anything please help. I dont have a pitch meter but the head speed is plenty high enough.

then you need a pitch meter and you should try the following.

In normal mode,
low trottle = 0 degree
center trottle = 5 to 6 degree
max trottle = 10 degree

I had the same problem with mine. The helo was at full throttle and barely lifted!!! I went back, took my rotor blade holders off, and put them back on. Come to find out, the blade holder was not positioned correctly on the rotor head. With the G2, the main blades seem to point indirectly toward the ground instead of being level like most helos. After I adjusted it, I lifted off at a little past 50% throttle. Most importantly, ensure the blades are tracking right! If not, it will have difficulty in getting off the ground. Hope this helps.

Even when I get a pitch gauge when the process to change the pitch curve doesnt do anything. So much for 100% ready to fly.

it is 100% ready to fly and I'm sure your setting was changed without you knowing it. More importantly don't give up and don't blame the helicopter. help is available.
