Default JR matchbox question

When trying to center two servos using the matchbox, if I move one servo 15-20 clicks in one direction, does that take away from the total throw of the servo like subtrim does?

Thanks

It does take away travel of the servo, but you can adjust this with the travel adjustment of the matchbox on each servo to match each other. You need to watch the mechanical set up and use servos that are close to each other to limit the effect.

For proper setup, should I make the travel volume for all servos 150% in the TX and reset the end points with the matchbox?

Does the TX travel volume value have any real affect since this can be adjusted at the matchbox?

What would provide the most resolution?

Thanks

The TX travel volume still has an effect, overall travel of all of the servos plugged into the matchbox. The matchbox then allows you to adjust each servo to match one another. To get the most resolution of the servos, you would use as large of travel adjust as you can to use more of the servos rotation, and adjust your linkages to get as high mechanical advantage as possible and still get the throw required.
