    Very limited swash plate travel. Please Healp

    Hello I have a HK 450 that I am setting up. My problem is that I am getting very limited swash-plate travel. It seems like the swash will not rise past the servos at 90 degrees. Now I get plenty of aileron travel out of the servos but just not from the combined swash movment. My servo rods are in spec. and
    My DX8 is sat at
    Servo travel at 100%
    swash mix is -60 Ail,Eli and Pitch

    What am I doing wrong that I cant get my Servos to give me more swash?
