Default Checking your setup - no digital gauge

So here's how I check my setup and also lets you know the swash is traveling level.
I didn't bother going into dir setup but you get the drift. Cant be checked any faster.
This a 450 Pro with a 500FBL gauge and full size rod because of my eye sight.
Notice how fast you can check all the way around mid stick and at max. The helli is actually setup for 14deg but the gauge only goes to 12 so the collective is at about 92% for this demo. At 92% you can see the gauge is tipped up a tad but at 91 it's down. The thing is it needs to read the same all the way around. First vid is checking 0deg. mid stick and is also how I level my swash without a leveler and with the head installed. The second vid at 12deg. It also helps if you rock the blades to see where if any slop tips the blades and adjust so any slop is equal when lining up the flybar. A digital doesn't provide this visual at a glance and know what you have and you cant check all the way around like this.
