The difference is not mentioned.
If only minor, would not be concerned as this could be in the mix.
If it is a feature in all Eclipse, (not noticed in mine with simple bench setup) it is really of no consequence
because user selects "Heli" and then the type "NOR", "120'" or "180" must be selected before
the remainder of the model detail is entered.
(Eclipse 7 - 90 degree CCPM Setup)
If changing swash setup at any time, then that model number must be reset,"REST", to clear
all extraneous data before reloading with different swash setup.

Many Hitec servo arms are not at 90 degrees when placed on the output shaft of a servo that
is "centered" with zeroed trims because of the spline count.
Servo horn is then centered by using sub trim which must be done once only
at the start of model set up before any mixes or other major changes.

If there is a major change observed and continuing concern, suggest email direct to:
