Default Millenium PD-669 beater angle?

So I just got the Millenium PD-669 double pedals ( http://www.thomann.de/intl/millenium...18f60eee57df0c ). I realize they're considered a pretty bad manufacturer, but I can't really afford anything more expensive atm and from the reviews I found they seemed competent for their price.

So anyway, I'm using them on my e-drum kit and having never used a double bass before, I'm having trouble figuring out how to change the beater angle on this thing. Is it even possible? The link I provided above should give enough pictures at different angles, but I can take some additional ones if necessary.

Thanks

I think it's the screw that attatches the spring(top side of that black ring) to the axis.

If that's the case then I don't know how to use it. All that screw seems to do is lock the black thing (that holds the spring) in place so it can't move horizontally. But the tube it's attached to is sort of hexagonal, so I can't change the angle at which it's locked in. It's always going to be the same angle.

I don't know about the Millenium, but I bought an Alesis E-Drum lately. And on the Alesis Basspedal you can't adjust the beater angle. Maybe the Millenium is as bad as the Alesis.

Possibly. Keep in mind the Millenium didn't come with the E-drum, I bought it separately.

The only way I can kinda change the angle of the beater is by adjusting the spring tension on the right pedal - so I can at least line up the two beaters, but then they're gonna have uneven tensions. Currently they're resting like this:
