First off thanks for posting the video. It made my maintenance check easy. When checking the alignment of the propellers; 2 are just under a centimeter off. I checked the DJI store for the "Arm Inclination Holder" but all I found was the "Aircraft Arm Angle Calibrator," is that the same thing? I've searched through the M600 manual to see how to align the propellers with the arm inclination holder but nothing comes up. I'd appreciate a description on how to use the arm inclination holder or even better a video tutorial.
Thanks for the help,
you will need to get a digital protractor so I found the Iphone compass angle app works well.
place the red adjuster under the motor mount, which gives you a flat surface to measure from,
place the angle finder (iPhone) on the bottom edge inline with the arm to get the inclination above the horizon, I think its 7º or 8º and then turn the angle finder 90º across the arm to get the torque angle 3º on the M600, remember CCW, is the opersit of the CW arm. I have not used the angle adaptor until now because the bottom of the motor housing is flat and you can get the alignment of the iPhone/ angle finder by eye. The adaptor is for 3º torque angle really as you can’t adjust the arm angle because the holes are pre-drilled.
Note: having the craft flat and stable and level will make a difference, so do that first, I used bits of cardboard to wedge the legs until horizontal in the z and Y axis first , still using the phone angle finder.
hope that helps
