My heli is flying fine and I wanted to experiment with a different tail setup. My max high and low end travels are 120 and 90 with a spartan gyro, S9650 servo with the 8 star horn, and the ball link closer to the center. How can I bump up the travel limits to get above 100 and with the two numbers close as possible?

Do I need to have 7 degree of pitch at center or can I set it at 0 pitch? I noticed it puts my pitch slider off center and this maybe the cause of having such a huge gap in travel limits.

I setup with zero pitch at center stick. Adjusted my servo position on the boom to give me 103/97. Tail holds spot on. I don't think you need 7 degrees setup unless you plan on flying in rate mode.

It doesnt matter. As long as you have max travel on both sides of the pitch slider. Mine looks like this.

Ken:

As long as you have the high end close to max travel, the low end can be below 100 for good tail authority?
