Comment:
Mainly a short flight to check the new balance tape and correct the tracking: the “black” blade needed 1 turn more pitch (which roughly gave it +1° compared to the other blade). After that some basic flying around with stall turns. Did some adjustments on the throttle-curve to keep the rpm up when braking with some negative pitch.

I also measured out the pitch-curve. Here are the results:

Tx Red pitch Black pitch Average pitch Diff pitch
0% -11.00 -10.50 -10.75 0.50
10% -10.00 -9.00 -9.50 1.00
20% -7.75 -7.00 -7.38 0.75
30% -5.50 -4.50 -5.00 1.00
40% -3.00 -2.00 -2.50 1.00
50% -0.50 0.50 0.00 1.00
60% 2.50 3.50 3.00 1.00
70% 5.50 6.50 6.00 1.00
80% 8.00 9.00 8.50 1.00
90% 10.25 11.00 10.63 0.75
100% 11.00 12.00 11.50 1.00

Or graphically:

This allowed me to calculate the Curve settings to get a nice -9:0:+9° pitch curve, which I configured as IdleUp1: 12.4% – 32.0% – 50.0% – 65.0% – 82.4%
