    Setting zero pitch should also be done in menu G?

    Should I now use the swash/grip linkages to adjust to zero pitch at this point?

    Sorry, got busy. Yes, you will do 0 in G. and yes, you will use the swash/grip linkages to adjust 0.

    Thanks. I had to put it aside for a bit. I smelled my brain smoking again. I will get back on it a little later.

    Do I adjust the grip links with the blades in line with the tail boom?

    Yes because that is where you will have your pitch gauge calibrated.

    At this point, should I spin the blades to do the other one or is it best practice to zero it at the rear?

    Just spin the blades around so you are always checking them in the same spot of the helicopter.

    That's what I did. I got zero on both blades now.

    What is the next step?

    Looking at the manual, I can access menu K which is the Collective Pitch Range Endpoints. Is this worth going into?

    It says do not use any pitch curves in the transmitter. Do I need to change the values before continuing? If so, what should they be? Also, what should the value on the gauge read when setting the min/max?

    Your throttle hold should be a linear pitch curve. If you still have the motor unplugged, IU1, IU2 and Hold should all be linear so you can use any of those, but ONLY if you still have that motor unplugged.

    Motor is unplugged. What about the min/max values for menu K?

    I'm not sure what you mean. You will just put a pitch gauge on the helicopter and set your pitch. Unless I'm wicked tired and not comprehending that menu lmao. Wouldn't be the first time.

    That is going to depend on your flying style. I always start with 12º of pitch on the collective. If you want something a little more tame, you can start with 10º and see how it goes.
