1. Other then not having an extra servo linkage rod (which I have) why would I not use the lower servo mounts for aileron and pitch with the 285's so that all servo linkage rods to the swashplate were all equal vs aileron and pitch being one length and elevator be another?

2. Would this not create less inneractions?

3. I would find it difficult to believe it could be a weight/center of gravity issue.

4. The wiring routing does not seem to be an issue.

5. Just very curious because that is the way I have just mounted mine. After removing my 287's. It just seemed more natural to me (secretly hoping I had an epiphany for all of us Ravers)

6. All input on this subject will be appreciated.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

The throw is the same from the servos no matter what the length is of the pushrods. Interaction is generally something that comes from the servos, not the pushrods. There are several models that use different length pushrods going up to the swashplate without issues. However if the servos do not center well, or stop at both extremes of throw evenly, there will always be issues with interactions. While you can certainly mount them in the lower position if you choose (yes you will need 1 extra longer rod) it will make little to no difference where interaction is concerned. All it will realy do is add the weight of the longer rods. Curtis would generaly say "its not how you get there, as long as you get there".

I hope this makes sense.

... and longer pushrods = less strength needed on the servo side
