611 versus 6100T set-up question
I set my 611/601 to always be in HH and adjust linkages/horn so that I need a 130% limit in both directions. The theory, as explained to me, is that HH doesn't need any mechanically neutral point and the equal 130%'s keeps the torque requirements for the servo down. Made sense and works great---no drift at all, for example.

I just ordered a 6100T and some of the flyers are saying it's important to set mechanical zero even if only flying in HH mode. I can't figure out why that would be true---I'd prefer to just set things up as with the 611.

Any 6100T flyers use my tried and true 611 set-up? Is mechanical zeroing required?

Tom,
I have the 6100 and I didn't set up a normal mode mechanical zero. I just eyeballed it, set up the 6100(with some help from a buddy) went and flew. Works great. If I was you I'd just set it up as you normaly would and then go fly, if your having some drifting on your tail then you'll have to spend the extra couple of minutes setting up for normal mode. Hope this helps ya.

Yes, this thing sounds great. I asked the question a little differently and got some really good answers on this thread. You might be interested to hear from the guy, for example, that designs CSM's things.

My 6100 exhibited tail blowouts at first when flying tail first into strongwinds. I checked it in normal mode and discovered I was not very close at all to mechanical nuetral. After doing the classic mech. zeroing, it now flies rock steady in HH. I've never had to do this with the 611, but it does seem necessary for the 6100.We don't need no stinking flybars!
