Default XL CDE servo arm question

I recently picked a used XL CDE and noticed that the linkages from the T control lever to the servo horn are in different holes. The top linkage is in the second hole out and the lower linkage is in the third hole! The pics in the manual on page 8 make it look like this is correct. With that set-up I am getting way too much travel and some pretty severe buzzing. Shouldn't those two linkages be the same distance from the center of the servo arm? Is it better to limit the travel by moving the control linkages in on the horn or by limiting travel in the radio? I am using a JR 6102 and HS56 servos. Thanks for your time.

Here is the way I have my arms set on this model..they are both in the same hole.
This setup seems to work well!
If you use the long arms they will hit the canopy![&o]

The battery is a 11.1 v 1800ma,10c, I got it from Pinnacle Models for...I think 26.00?
It will run my Heli for about 10 minutes or so.
