Part and parcel of having negative pitch is to allow for auto-rotation in the event of a motor failure. Zero pitch is not enough to create the airflow over the blades to keep them spinning, hence the amount of negative pitch on my setups. Although I have three possible settings, I only use Normal and Idle 1 as Idle 2 has a faster head speed for emergencies (really heavy winds, outrunning lightening, etc, ). However, if it is working for you, keep going. Take care.
