what pitch guage do you use?

I'm into my first fixed pitch (blade sr) after graduating from coaxials and need a pitch guage. I've got the screw type but can't figure them out for the life of me. Been thinking about one with the bubble level built in hoping this would be a tad easier.

Am I the only intermediate that feels this way?

The Blade SR is a CP(collective pitch) heli. The small eflite, align, helimax gauges are fine for mini helis. You loosen the screw and set it to the pitch you want, then slide the gauge onto the blade about 1/2 way down the blade. The top of the gauge should be parrallel with the flybar if not adjustments need to be made. There is more to it than that but that is basic of the gauge only. It goes along with your throttle and pitch curves in your TX.

Here ya go. BTW, the Blade SR is a CP (Collective Pitch) heli, not fixed pitch.
