12.19. Transmitter tail setup - both fixed and variable pitch

Move the rudder and make sure the NOSE of the heli will move in the same direction you push the rudder.

This means the when you push the rudder RIGHT, the tail should move LEFT and vice versa.

If the tail rotor is mounted on the LEFT side of the tail boom and it is a pusher configuration, and you press the rudder RIGHT then the tail blades should DECREASE pitch.

If the tail rotor is mounted on the RIGHT side of the tail boom and it is a pusher configuration, and you press the rudder RIGHT then the tail blades should INCREASE pitch.

For a fixed pitch tail, substitute the words "slow down" for "decrease pitch" and "speed up" for "increase pitch".

If the tail moves in the wrong direction, then you should reverse the rudder channel on your transmitter.
