Limiting to 98% is good practice for linear servos!

Probably for the best!

I limit all mine. I don't notice the lack of 2% movement and it helps to prevent servo lock ups...

OI VEY

Linear servos for these buggers must not be turned up past 100% at the max, usually they're dialed down to prevent overdriving them and running the wiper arm off the resistor strip which jams the servo and causes airplanes to do Very Bad Things™

125% (9303, DX6i) - 150% ( DX8, 9, 18 etc.) is for use with rotary servos.

many forum mebers are saying different measurements. Some with LG some without. I thought CG will not change with or without LG.
Mike,

Manual says, "CG location is 37mm back from the leading edge of the wing at the root."
I prefer 37mm~40mm.

Thank you. Will recheck it for the next flight ... I been flying without checking for the past 3 months, no issues, just landing a bit bouncy at time. May be the CG is a bit nose heavy
