Kyosho 30 pitch setup

Hi,
Just thought I'd share a simple set up tip for the Concept/Nexus 30/46
size helis.
I don't think this is explicit in the manual, so here goes.
(if this is obvious, then sorry to waste everybody's time )

Anyway, for proper pitch/mixer setup, all of the cyclic levers should be
parallel and
horizontal (i.e. perpendicular to the main shaft) for zero degrees of
collective
pitch with central swash plate position.  And for max 3d setup, there
should be equal
exposed main-shaft above and below the mixer-base at 0 degrees
collective.

So, to set a new heli/ rebuild one, start with the mixer arms horizontal
and set all
the rod lengths so that the remain in this position when connected to
the servos (centred).

For max +ve -ve pitch, the equal exposed main shaft described above, is
obtained
by setting the mast stopper in the correct postion on the main shaft.
The design
allows +-2mm from the optimum postion (i.e. the grove in the main shaft
is about 5mm
wide)  Make sure that the bolt holes through  the mast are in line with
the mixer base,
otherwise the swash plate timing will be off.

Anyway, that's just my tip of the day!!! ( for any newbie Kyosho owners
out there)
