You can eyeball the blades on an mCPx (almost as close as a pitch gauge) by "sighting" down the blade from the ends. The blade tips are nearly flat - so 0 is pretty easy to determine - then "reverse-engineer" the rest of the settings by adding (or subtracting) 20% to the percentage number on your pitch curve. Example if 0 is 44% ... try 52% for 2 ... 60% for 4 ... 68% for 6 ... 36% for -2 Should be close enough for government purposes but tweak the numbers for best results
