Hear what others are saying about using the above procedures and spreadsheets for setting up Hitec Digital Servos:
"Bell Electronic Technologies,
Thanks for the follow-up and yes, I did get the spread sheets downloaded. I use both, in-plane and out of plane. For the Rudder servo's , I made a jig like yours and program it for 50 degrees. The others I do them on the plane because of geometry.
The 35% Carden has two servo's per Wing, I did one at a time, then used a Y, they're perfect, not one sound from Hitec Digital's at any position.

Thanks for sharing the spreadsheet for programming using the Hitec HFP-20 programmer. It certainly improved my accuracy and time. I see the use of programmer/spreadsheet as a valuable tool, but it still is important to get the mechanical setup close. The big shocker for me was measuring the neutral output of the receiver, I assumed they were all the same between channels, not so. They don't vary that much, never the less, it's a detail to follow to improve the performance.
