That's where I set mine. On my new 60" MXS I had two servos that were set at 16! They centered so poorly that I could not even get close to setting the plane up. I though something was wrong with my radio until I checked the dead bands. The elevator counterbalance would center 1/4 differently from one movement to the next!

Funny thing is, we see a lot of 5242 non-love we see around here, but once I set my dead bands, those servos have been golden for me. They center precisely, and I get no stalling or blowback. Unless you are going to fly harder than I do, I just can't see a need for $100 servos in these planes.

However, just for the hell of it, on my 60" Laser I just might try some of those gold plated servos
