Default Futaba SBUS servos

Hi Friends, Just inquiring about futaba sbus servos. Recently i purchased 3 bls272HV S-BUS servos and plan to use them for my heli flybarless unit. Ill be using them like normal channel assigned servos, however since they are programmable, do i still need to purchase a CIU-2 unit to double check the servo settings e.g. speed, slow stop ect? And to ensure that 3 servos are the same consistent settings before i connect them to my FBL unit? or i can just plug them in and use them like BLS255HV(Out of stock from my local shop) Anybody knows the default parameters for these sbus servos from factory?
Any feedback suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

In a heli using S-Bus servos gets you nothing. So there is no need to do anything other than plug them in and go fly. The programmability of S-Bus shines in larger planes where you are using multiple servos on a surface (like 3 servos per aileron half) and allows super accurate matching and detangles the wiring mess. On a FBL heli they just act like great servos.
