how to pitch a warp drive

Post by Pimp Slow »

I know I need a protractor but don't know what kind to get. Also don't know how far to measure the blade to get pitch. Ifsomeone can tell me where to get the protractor from and how to do it I would appreciate it

any hardware store has degree levels. pick a spot---say 4 inches from the end while the airboat and prop blade are level. not complicated.

It dont matter where you measure from as long as you measure at the same place on each blade

Get the one from Warp Drive it is simple and allows you to do it by yourself. I go about 2" in.
