YOU DO NOT WANT THIS. The "theory" you are going by is incorrect. A CP heli will not hover with 0 pitch period and it is not suppose to!. This is why you have had to add pitch to get it to hover mid stick. If you want your heli to fly right you need to do some adjustments and get it back to 0 at midstick and hovering at 70-75% of the stick.

BTW I am flipping my heli with a pitch around 10 degrees pos and around 9 neg...... So I would guess my hover is at about 5 degrees
