Without negative pitch you might as well buy a cheap fixed pitch heli instead.
PS. anyone know what the silvery pit tool is for that you got with the master cp?
Im guessing its somehow for leveling the swash or setting up pitch, but as theres no balls on it i dont really see how its meant to be used?.
I personally don't agree with any negative pitch until you can hover. They won't be flying and should not be in the wind. I am talking pure beginner with not CP experience.
The silver pit is used to be mounted on the top to the main shaft. Take the button of and screw it in place. You then stick rods in each side and this simulates a level flybar to set up pitch. It works great, but the Align electronic pitch gauge is easier and better.
