Default Shortened my Sticks

So i was programming some new numbers in my TX.. and as i was moving around my sticks i realized, i never once, in the three years ive been flying ever even thought about lowering the sticks. Since ive built and have been trying to dial in my new rex500 ive been experimenting with negative expos and such looking for the right "feeling".. so i dropped both sticks to the base. The set screw is now kind of flush with the crown and its an entirely new feeling on my thumbs. I took her up about 15 minutes ago and man!!! now THATS what ive been missing.. that thing flew like i never dreamed. It was so tight. Im not sure i can really articulate what it is that happened, but i somehow felt, i dunno, more 'connected' to the bird.. This strange feeling of confidence arose and i swear if it was day time i might have gone for my first invert right then and there. anyway, it really made my night, and i cant believe all this time something that small wouldve made such a major change.
