Well Visions it's a fixed length. Fixed by the two links coming off the
elevator bell-crank. As these are also the swashplate anti-rotation
links you can't get it wrong (unless you've made your own).

The rods connecting to the Hiller lever are made to the same length as
the distance from the swashplate upper ring balls to the centre of the
fly-bar. They both need to be identical in length.
Pitch rod lengths are made long enough to give about 5 degrees positive
pitch at the blades when the pitch slider/mixer base is approximately
60% up the shaft.
>What is your low, neutral , high stick set to?
Depends on where along the learning curve you are.
For starting out -2 low, +5 hover, +9 max
Vary the low to suit your taste. More negative makes for a more
collective sensitive heli and vice-versa.
