8FGH - Swash/Neutral point/Linkage compensation
I am toying with the idea of switching to a 8FG and have been reading the manual. There are quite a few things that are very cool and a few things that are not so clear to me.

These items are on page 65 of the manual
-It talks about the 'Neutral point' adjustment. What is this and what is the difference between this and subtrim? At first it sounds like you can set the neutral position of the servo but says "This will move the neutral point of the servos to the actual perpendicular position. However, this adjustment changes only the axis point of the compensation functions in this menu, and does not affect the neutral position of other functions."
Can someone explain this please?

-Regarding the Swash AFR and Linkage compensation. I assume this is all for reducing CCPM interaction. Can someone give an overview on how these are used when setting up a model?

Thanks

Here's a guide for setting up the eCCPM compensation mixers. I originally wrote it for the 14MZ, but the 8FG uses the same meu items for it. Let me know if you need clarification on it.

Thank you Ben. That clears up a lot.

A couple questions:

-You mentioned "Under usual circumstances, the NEUTRAL POINT menu will not need to be manipulated."

What would be considered non-normal circumstances when you would have to use this and what exactly does it do? If in theory you are moving the center/ neutral point of the servo why not just do that instead of using subtrim if needed. What is the difference?

Thx
