+10/-10 is nice, i have +11/-12

as for your other question I use to screws. I use the spare screws that came with the kit, the small ones that is used for the main frame. I dremelled a bit off just enough so that it protrude inside the tail boom but not too much or the tail will rub on it, just enough to see it protruding instide. I also round off the edges of the screw, then i dip the edge in some Epoxy. i allow to cure and hardened then i place that in the hole with some CA. I use 2 screws because i oil my tail everytime prior to use. i hope this helps.

Thats what I have set up:

Pitch 45%
Aileron 55%
Elevator 55%
I just check with throttle off...

Move pitch up and down, move all servos... if it doesn't bind and your servo arm doesn't hit the main gear... you should be ok...lol

@pitchp

Thank you. Good idea with the epoxy. I should use epoxy as well, it would remain forever in its place then.

@ministeve2003

Ok, then I keep my settings like that. Had also in mind to have it easy controllable. I am a bit afraid of this little devil and my limited pilot skills.

Seems my bird is grounded for tonite. Yesterday at the first test flight, my tail box was twisted to the right. I lost one tail blade in the following ground contact and the store around the corner has no spare.

But lesson learned. Why not ordering some cheap spare from HobbyKing, right then when buying the helicopter...

lol read what i posted again. it wont be there forever, i allowed the screw to dry hence the epoxy will hardened (once the epoxy is dried on the screw) then i screw it in i add a bit of CA to lock it into place. And when it comes time to change the belt i apply the soldering iron rod on to the head of the screw and she comes out like butter. Do you get it dude? lol what ever you do, dont epoxy the screw into place. It will be there forever! lol

To sum it up, I am replacing the rubber dongle with a metal dongle but coated with epoxy, and i'm using CA to lock it into place. i hope you get what i'm trying to say. I know the guys here know what i'm talking about, and i understand you are new to this 250, and as the guys here we'll tell ya, it's trully a fun heli to have.

I may be all wet but I will throw in my 2 cents’,
I love helicopters but for as long as I have been at it I suck. But hey I am having fun.
My 450 is more intimidating as far as getting in the blades, the 250 will seem to move faster because of its small size. So I set mine real mild and will increase AIL and Ele as I feel more comfortable. The pitch on the other hand I adjust it so I get full range in the head without binding. I then adjust the pitch curve so that I am getting +10 & -10. As I am flying I can adjust these up or down to how it flies, I increase pitch until it starts to bog then I back off.

Pitch 67%
Aileron 45%
Elevator 45%

I feel your pain I Have been waiting on parts for ever so it seems but they showed up last night so just need to balance blades and put on training gear for test flight.

will do Hellysmack, i put it right here. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1406692

pitchp, i just looked at what your talking about the black angel , i have to say that has to be the u..... . the black i like , but what is up with the gold tub swash .
the reason i like the blue is it is more visible when its flying than the black , but i would prefer the black over the blue if they gave me a choice.
see how bad the weather is here , yesterday the sun was out and it was snowing , today its cold and looks like its going to rain.

yeah the gold is horrible. just the black is good. If you want something real easy on the eye some say the fluro tail, fluro skids and flashy stickers on the blades help. i think i got too many blue helis as it is. copterx has stuck with the blue look since day one. i've got blue helis to build as spare, but i got too many already as it is.

Ok I have a question
Where do you get the spacers that go between the blade grip bearing and the rubber damper?
They donít come with the feathering shafts and do not come separate; I have checked the CopterX and Hobby king and looks like you can only get them with the blade grips.
found a washer to get by.

Well my 250 just past test flight
