I measured a regular 450 shaft- it is 116mm
A 450 pro shaft is 118mm.

The ground out area is not centered either, and different on both.

Think i have it set correctly and everything moving in the correct direction. ie If i tilt forward then the swash tilts back then slowly returns to level. Just need to set collective up. Guess i just need to go 0 pitch mid stick, get the pitch arms? Is that what there called, level then adjust upper links to get 0 pitch.

Yes, 0 pitch at mid-stick with servo arms are all at right angle (perpendicular) to main shaft).

They don't need to be perfectly level (perpendicular) just need to be able to get the job done without binding, if the are way off it could affect the pitch curves but close is good enough.

All you need is the USB doggle and either Tarot or John's zyx software. Detail instruction can be found in the forum/thread or Tarot website.

@ Peter24, if you go into the HK site for this unit, hit the "File" button, everything is there also.
