Pulse width, how do I know?

I need to know what the pulse width is on my throttle channel at full throttle and at minimum. How can I find out? The transmitter is an 18MZ on mode 1.

Thanks.

Fantastic, I mainly use AMT's and they have always used 4mm OD on their turbine connections with 6mm only into the pump. Always loved the CAT's because they were so light and felt quite desperate...

Yes, nice approach and landing. The Sabre Dance looks light, don't see any leading edge slats being used at all. May I venture to say the loud whistle is an airframe noice, probably because there is...
