How much does blade and paddle pitch affect tail?

My tail is still all over the place. Have tried evertying but now noticed that my blades and paddles were seriously out of pitch.

Is there a correlation?

Thank you

The paddles should be at zero degrees pitch or else you will get vibes. Blades that have different pitch relative to each other will track poorly and effect the model's performance. Generally speaking, if you get the tracking correct and then reduce blade pitch, head speed increases which in turn improves tail authority...

Tunr both of the knobs on top of the transmitter fully counter clockwise, or left to their most negative settings. This raises RPMs and lowers the pitch.
Thus it will take higher throttle setting to attain liftoff. Thus more headspeed, and faster tail rotor speed, for more control authority.

Eventually you may want to do this mod. It is on my list of things to do.
