Dirt Cheap Heli Pitch Gauge and other Tools


Hey All,
Got bored and decided I didn't want to pay for a pitch gauge, so I made my own. Materials cost 1 piece of card stock.

I know some of the helis come with a pitch gauge like this...but the T-Rex doesn't. This will work with any heli that has a blade chord of around 32mm.

As far as the gauge goes...the degrees are denoted as absolute values, so if you have it on 3* but it looks like you're getting neg pitch, flip it over

Also here is a template that I used for cutting out the eCCPM band for my T-Rex. Works really well!

Enjoy,
Jared
