DIY Pitch-gauge.

Sticky-back plastic not required. It's not a Blue Peter, but you'll be a jolly Roger when you've set your pitch and don't have to splash out on a plastic gauge, even if they're cheep as chips. Now how much batter could that be 'Laughing'

*******************Edit**********************

If that link doesn't work then access via this site: http://www.heliflyers.org.uk/
and click on the underlined ‘here' link
Need to set up a new helicopter? Set up help instructions added. here and they are free to download.
Then click on the underlined ‘pitch gauge' link
Downloadable file for a do-it-yourself free helicopter pitch gauge. Pitch gauge

That will open a pdf file with a printable gauge with degree marks.

****************************************************

It's useful for anyone whose hasn't any pitch gauges, and the site has other useful links for RC helicopters too.

Don't seem to be able to get that link to work, maybe it's not available here!

I'll stick to my cheapo ones with degrees on until I find out what you're suggesting.

Here's the print-out for that pitch gauge, and one cut out and stuck onto the card back from an A4 pad.



Now that's really cheep 'Laughing'
