Default Master CP help needed with Servos

Hi, trying to level my Swashplate after installing Metal Gear Servo's.

Never done it before so could use a bit of help.

When I have throttle at mid-stick My plate it level. But my problem is when I move the throttle up and down aileron and pitch servos go up but elevator goes down. Are all three meant to go up / down together ? They do if I move Elevator stick up and down.

Tx is a Devo 7.

I have attached a Video to show my problem.

P.S quite a newbie to this too.

Was my fault I had them plugged in wrong on Rx. Working ok now.

They are the Metal Gear Servos WK-7.6-9

Waiting for 4 of the Emax ES08MD's to come from China.

Thanks

Kevin

With the collective stick in mid position and the curve set up to give 0 collective, screw the arms onto the three servos so they are 90 degrees to the body of the servo. You won't get them exact unless you're lucky. You can use subtrim to bring them closer.

Then adjust the linkages to the swash so the swash is 90 degrees to the shaft in all directions.

You might want to unplug the motors or set up throttle hold to give 0 pitch when activated.

That's the basics of it.
