Default A tip for setting up Hitec digital servos

I was having a hard time getting the 5625's matched up on my UCD and then I got an idea. I made a degree wheel and a pointer and used them to adjust the servos to MATCH each other perfectly. The whole thing is made out of styrene sheet(garage sale sign) and took about 10 minutes to make.

1. Hold the servo securely(I use a small machinists vice) and connect the Hitec programmer.
2. Use the programmer to set center at 0 degrees and set the end points to any place you desire.
3. Change servos and set the next one up exactly like the previous one.
4. Put them in the plane and they match perfectly.

I get these results on the first try every time.

Something I also noticed was that the pair of 5625's were NOT the same out of the box, one had 6 degrees more rotation on the right side travel than the other. Needless to say you will really have to work hard in the TX programming to get that eliminated so why bother with doing it that way? Just do it in the servo in the first place, they are programmable after all!
