I seem to remember that the control push tube lengths were different by a fraction of an inch. Can someone measure both sides and give me the lengths? I am getting ready to take a first flight and want them to be in the ballpark when I do. Thanks!

If you built everything dead center , than you want your stick centered and the rotor a couple of degrees to the right.
So the right side will be shorter , the amount will be determined by the ratio of movement
Starting off with equal tubes will not be dangerous but you may have to give some right stick on take off..

To the right for a gearbox and to the left for a belt drive.
Don't know what you have.
