Default MT 3 Blade Comp CS Blade Clearance

Hi All,

Does anyone know the numbers for a MTV-12_B/183-59b regarding how much one should see the trailing edge move aft at full course pitch at various points along the blade from the hub?

Perhaps somebody has the numbers on where the center of rotation is on the chord at varying distances from the hub?

I need to build my cowl to 1/2" clearance and have no way of scientifically measuring what that is.

MT will not provide the #s for some reason. It takes more pressure than I can safely deliver to try to actuate the pitch dome, and wrenching the composite and balsa blade is probably not a good idea.

Anyone come across the numbers here?
