You still need that to zero your blades though.

I have one of the hobbymate ones but I find that it's less accurate than the mechanical gauge giving slightly different results depending on it's orientation.

This gauge is inexpensive and very nice:



The Agile 7.2 FBL balls work perfectly in the Innova DFC arms btw.



HS4025 shaft doesn't reach the pinion support bearing, I will need to replace it with an HKIII 4025 shaft in order to use this.

I've been a bit disappointed in the finish on the parts, it looks like they're just tossing them in a bucket at the factory or something. Edges will often have small burrs or chips from the milling process as well. The RJX Xtreme 600 I built last year was way, way better in this regard (the CNC parts were as close to perfect as I have ever seen in a helicopter kit and that cost less than $300). If the Agile 7.2 is like this then there is no way I would pay $1000 for one. That's a premium price and for that much I expect perfection.
