Any help?

Alejandro,
I believe this is mostly a personal preference on how to setup your normal mode. There are advantages and disadvantages on both depending on what type of flying you will be doing.

Hover at midstick
Advantage: Better feel for precision hovering and AMA/FAI style flying.
Disadvantage: Awkward transition to 3D or stunt mode.

Hover at 3/4
Advantage: Preferred setup for those who mostly fly 3D. A must use on Idle up setups with V throttle curves or pitch range of +10 top, to -10 bottom, with 0 degrees at midstick. It will give you a smooth transition going into and coming off Idle up.
Disadvantage: Less precise hover for normal mode since you are cramming more pitch variation in less stick movement.

Although most of my flying today is 3D-ish, I personally like the1/2 stick hover for normal mode, it helps me when I mazoquistically practice precision hover stuff.


Hope this help

Santiago

It realy depends on what your aim is in the hobby, I think.

If you want to head for 3D I would go for a 3/4 stick for hover, that way 1/2 stick is 0* Pitch. When you go inverted 1/4 stick is hover. This can be set up with a straight line pitch curve and throttle curves to suit.

If you want to go for scale flying 1/2 stick might suit you better. You seem to get more control around mid stick, to control your hight. Expo etc helps at mid stick.
