Default 450 XL HDE Rod Length

I'm puttting together the 450 Xl HDE, I assembled the control rods per the book, but there still to long, does anyone know the correct lenght on these?

The manual lengths will get you very, very close they certainly did on my HDE. However, each heli will be slightly different. What you need to do is ensure you have the correct rod, it's easy to think you have the correct rod and in fact don't. It wasn't until I got a set of dial calipers that I knew for sure I had the correct 1. After that it's just a matter of fine tuning the rods a bit to fit your specific heli.

I have digital calipers and the control rod length tool, and they still seem too long, I don't know what's wrong, I guess I'll just crank in the ball ends until they fit on the servo arms [:@]

Since the output shaft of all servos is not the same you will end up with different lengths than the suggested lengths. Setup as recommended in the manual should get you fairly close though. I think the worst I had was 4-5 turns off.
