Default Switch Wheel Servo?

I just received Align 3G FBL recently. I already have QuickUK Servo wheel on my Trex 700E KDE. Manual say Align servo wheel 24.4mm horn diameter. I measured QuickUK servo wheel diameter the inner hole about 30mm. should I stick with it then adjust it? I have other one quick uk wheel servo H1120 25mm inner hole diameter. its same diameter. Im thinking buy two more H1120 25mm.
Thanks in advance!

The 24.4mm diameter is there for a reason, not just to reduce the throw, but also provide more leverage to the swash. I have not tried larger diameter, but I don't see why you can't use it other than the servo working a little harder.

Switch to smaller, it WONT fly good with bigger wheel and you will just overstress the servos & regulator.

(too high mechanical gain with bigger)

Avoid using metal arms on servos with metal gears. In the event of a crash the servo gears will become damaged and that gets very expensive.
Best to have the arms as sacrificial items they cost almost nothing in comparison..

Quick UK say, they are 25mm, not 24,5 mm. Don't know if it really matter at the end..
