help with logo 500 heli setup

So i finally got a new heli after 7 months since i had my hk450 and was doing basic 3d on it (inverted hovering, flips) and bought a sim (g5.5) about a month before now so flying it isnt the problem =), and best of all its the heli of my dreams, a brand new logo 500DX (flybared) as it never was completed by the previous owner. So iev been rebuilding a few bits the previous owner really did badly ie lopsided flybar, very incorrect linkage lengths and now im onto setting up the cyclic servos (futaba s9252 @5v) with my turnigy 9x after days of setting up the head with a set of calipers =s, but now im having trouble with setting up the head as iev forgotten alot of stuff , the main thing im having trouble with is keeping the swash lever constantly. Iev got to the point were all the servos are moving in the right direction aswell at the same pace doing normal speed stick movments and swash wont move up or down more than 0.5mm which is normal i guess (unless pitch is obviously changed). But when i do really hard stick bashing the swash really moves up and down up to 8mm and im not quite shore what to do to fix it =/. I have a few days to fix this so take your time with the replies as my ESC (100A redbrick) batterys (zippy 6s 5000mah 25c) gyro (ga250 LOVE THIS GYRO) come in.

TLDR: need help setting up cyclic on logo 500 with tg9x, swash works fine (under 0.5mm movment) with normal stick movment speeds, but when you really go crazy the swash moves up and down alot.

hahah found out it was just the 9v battery i was running the ubec off for setup inside was just not supplying enough current to the servos =P, did it with a lipo saddle pack and it works pretty much fine.
