If you've got +9 degrees with the top pitch value set at 60% it sounds like you
could have the pitch range "mechanically" advanced way too far by way of the
blade control links,or your collective ATV's are a long way different .
Centre the collective stick and reset all the pitch curve values to
0,25,50,75,100.Set both collective direction ATV's roughly the same, + or - 10
is ok ,but you don't want like a difference of 30 or more %,set the pitch
slider roughly at half it's travel on the mainmast.put the servo arm on the
servo so the linkage meets at roughly at 90deg to the arm.With collective
stick still centred set the pitch on a blade with the blade operating link so
that it's about +4 deg when read off a pitch gauge (or one of those cardboard
efforts)..Remember how many turns you used (in or out)and set the other blade
link the same
This should give a range of about -6 to +10,depending how long the collective
servo arm is and how much ATV you've set.
All being well your new pitch curve might end up to be 20,40,60,80,90 for a
range of -4low +6mid and +9high.
This is assuming that you don't want a 0deg centre collective setup
