Been a long time since I had to do the setup on my trex600. Recently got a new gyro which failed while I was doing piro flips. Luckily the damage wasn't much but I had to do the swash setup again. In normal mode I have the cyclics at 8 degrees which is fine. But in stunt mode I get 8 degrees one way and 15 the other. Is that ok? Doesn't seem right but I really can't remember

Whether you are talking cyclic or collective you should have equal numbers both ways. IE: +/- 12' collective and +/- 8' cyclic. Either your swash links from the servos are too long and you are getting more movement in one directin than the other, or your servos aren't centered or you need to check your flybar and washout mechanics. Set your swash so its as close to centered on the main shaft with your servos arms at 90' at mid stick and a linear pitch curve. Then with midstick your washout arms should be parallel and your flybar cage and everything should be parallel with zero pitch on the main blades and paddles. That should even things out if done properly.
