Funkey Bell 222
Has anyone used a Raptor 30 V2 mechanics to fill the Century Funkey Bell 222 (30 size) body the web site says to cut the pitch arm . But does not say were or by how much. Can anyone help

*** Bob,I am not familiar with this particular conversion but the best way to go about it is to set up the required pitch movement first ( going by the instructions for the Century Bell 222) with some sort of jig,then see how much is required to be taken off the respective arm by adjusting the links as well,the throw will alter the way the helicopter performs so just nibble a bit at a time,best to test hover in between the trimming procedure.It is a case with many helicopter designs to just keep trying different settings until your own skill levels match that of the models ability.Tread carefully until you achieve the result required.
