Servo centering
What is considered the best brand of servo that has the best centering when the stick is released. My servos, after being activated, do not go back to the same location as before. Not much of a difference but it is noticeable.

Any of the SBus or XBus programmable servos can be set up to have essentially zero deadband. The catch is that the average current drain goes up dramatically.

A servo can be set up to have zero deadband and still not center because there is not enough torque near center. It will just sit there and buzz. Binding in the linkage will cause the effect that you describe.

The failure to center that you see can also be in the stick assembly (gimbal) and not in the servo. Your stick assembly AND your fingers are not really that good. There are wild claims for resolution - 4096 positions. You would be lucky if you had an effective resolution - stick to servo - of 512. 256 would be more typical. 90 degrees / 256 = 0.35 degrees. Can you see 0.35 degrees ?

Hall Effect sensors have a hysteresis of far more than 0.35 degrees.

Hall Effect chips apparently add about 4 ms to the latency of your radio.

Here's a question, would a higher torque lower speed servo have better center repeatability due to the higher ratio gearing, meaning less servo arm movement per motor revolution?60% of the time, it works every time!

Nope. The sensor is on the final gear, not the motor.

At least on all the servos I have taken apart.

Are the servos connected to the linkages?

Might check the centering when the servos aren't connected to their linkages.

So
1) is this a servo problem?
2) is this a transmitter/receiver problem
3) is this a FLB unit problem?

They seem to be intertwined.
