Flybarless Digital Pitch Gauge for R/C Helicopter

Flybarless R/C helicopters can make it difficult for pilots to adjust and check the pitch set-up of helicopter main rotor blades due to the lack of a traditional flybar for reference. With our digital pitch gauge, life is made easy!

Our new Digital Pitch Gauge offers high accuracy and ultra fast pitch angle measurement in a simple/convenient design. It's powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (pre-installed) and allows for measurement of blade pitch on any size R/C helicopter. This pitch gauge features a built-in magnet which secures the unit to your helicopter's blade grip bolt. This means it can be easily used for both main blade and tail blade pitch measurement.

This pitch gauge includes a USB cable for easy recharging of the in-built Li-ion battery, and features a battery status indicator on the LCD.

Features:
• +/-90 Detectable Pitch Range
• Backlit LCD Display
• Auto-Rotating Screen Function
• Auto-Detecting Horizontal Level
• Zero and Hold Function
• Rechargeable Li-ion Battery (pre-installed)
• Auto Power-Off Function (after 3 minutes)

Specs:
Dimension: 45x32x12mm
Pitch Range: +/-90
Resolution: 0.1
Battery: Li-ion (pre-installed)
Weight: 35g

Includes:
Digital Pitch Gauge
USB Cable (for charging)

$17.99

Spend $2 more and you don't have to remove your blades.

You don't need to.
You can either do it with blades on or off, unlike with usual digital pitch gauges.

Has anyone tried it?

I got 2 of them. I Set both sides at once. Easy to use after you remove the blades, since you can move heli around without the blades getting in the way.

Thanks for necro'ing this thread. That pitch gauge is not too costly and I might just order it the next time I do a HK take out.

I currently use an old RC Logger, but sometimes have thought it'd be great to check pitch without the blades on, ie during a build, when you've not quite decided on blades.
