Default Spektrum DX6 -Travel Adjust question

I have a FMS Extra 300 I am setting up and one aileron has 35mm of travel up and 35mm travel down for 70mm total travel.

The other aileron has 40mm up travel and 35mm down. They both should be 35mm.

Is the "travel adjust" function on my Spektrum DX6 (new model) in the servo set up menu what I use to reduce that 40mm to 35mm?

I have the servo arm and clevis set ups the same on both left and right wings and each wing has its own servo.

I for one wouldn't worry about it......it just means it 'might' roll more in one direction than the other and I bet you couldn't tell that while flying.

Agreed, you'll never notice it in the air.

Now, if it were your elevator, that would need to be corrected.

It means that the airplane will not roll axial. Most guys will not care simply because they have never flown an airplane that has been through a 100% trimming regime. Once you have flown an airplane that is set up to this level you would veiw this as a huge deal. None of my airplanes would leave the ground like that.

Jeff, Don't "roll axial" and you will be fine

Perhaps Jeff would like to know how to correctly adjust his airplane. Some of us want our airplanes to fly well not just fly.
