Wamsy, diggity, and myself have worked on this for hours and we can't get both servos to travel the same distance. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've never had to setup with a Spektrum before, I only flew Futaba . Here's my setup.

89 slick
Hitec 7955's
DX8
Spektrum 9110 rx
2" SWB Arms

Geometry looks close, but no matter what I do, one always seems to be to be traveling about 10 degrees more than the other.
I'm really striving to get that full elevator deflection but one keeps stopping at 38 degrees when I know it can go past that. I've switched out the servos to make sure it wasn't a programming issue, but it very well could be, it's just happening on more than 2 servos.
Did you select the dual elevator tail type? Then you won't have to do any mixing.

Also, do you have the servo travel set the same for both elevator channels?

If you want more power in a cheap motor, get this motor! I have this motor in my 33" epp extra and it is a rocket! Running on 2s with a gws 8x4.3 prop.

My guess is along the lines of what SportFlyer is talking about. I bet the subtrim on one of the servos is limiting your travel.

when you use subtrim, you're loosing throw in that same direction.

May want to throw the servo onto a programmer and make sure it doesn't have an end point programmed in it.

Vyper Bype for sale!

Ok, I'm selling my vyper bype! I thought I would post it here for the addicts before I put it in the classifieds. It is the blue color. It has about 10 flights on it and absolutely no damage whatsoever! It is like brand new! Perfect condition! It has a Motrolfly 3615-750kv motor, ZTW B-series 65a esc, and HS-5085MG servos all around! I am asking $475 for the addicts. LPU only for now. PM me for pics!

Thanks!

I'll have to do this. All the answers mentioned so far have been explored already. Even with no subtrim, the throw is way different. Endpoints both maxed out. Very frustrating! This put me way back so far.

Did you buy the servos used? If so, I bet one of them has been programmed.

Like Moose said. I think your best bet and to be 100% sure is to get a programmer on it.
