Without thinking about it, I had put your method to use.

I think that is why I got so many flights in before it started glitching.
That is ironic! So with 58 clicks that must have been maybe 4 turns on each ball link? About how many flights did you have before you adjusted the links? You said you had/have a total of about 100 so I'm curious if it was about 50/50.

I unscrewed each ball link 2 full turns to get rid of my original 32 clicks of pitch subtrim. I think I could perhaps go one more turn. Then, from there, if you could go 4-6 turns in and not bind (or run out of thread) the wear could be distributed a bit at least although it would still overlap near the middle of the servo. I'm not doing a lot of full range pitch stuff, I'm not that skilled yet, so moving the center/hover/basic FF pitch point a little bit one way or the other might be enough to help prolong the life.
Always learning, and enjoying the process!
