Default What is best center servo-link angle?

Hi,

I am getting close to being finished assembling my T-Rex 450 Sport. I want now to use my Trueblood swash-plate leveling tool. I wonder what the best angle is between a servo control arm and the link when the servo is in the mid position. I think it should be 90 degrees, but this is not what is indicated in the T-Rex 450 Sport manual.

This is my first heli, so I not full of confidence. Help from some experts ould be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Ted

When the swashplate is at mid-travel, the servos are centered and the blades are at zero (0) degrees, yes the link should be at 90 degrees to the servo arm.

This is all assuming that you want a 3D set-up on your helicopter. You can always dial back electronically with milder pitch curves on the radio. The important part is the mechanical set-up.

90 degrees. Your going to want to do 3D reallllyyy soon even if you're not planning on it.
