My wgts on Ele & Ail in the Inputs Menu are also down to a little over 30% to get the 8deg pitch on cyclic. I haven't really understood it completely, but the calculation at the beginning of this thread for the 12deg+6deg = 18 which translates to 66% collective and 34% for the cyclics didn't quite work for me.
Depends on how your setup is. The numbers are a guide (first pass). You can (and should) tweak to fine tune the pitches you need.

The constants are:
- CYC1, 2 and 3 stay at 100%
- Servo limits are configured in servo tab for each cyclic servo.
- Max of Ail/Ele weight + Collective weight should be 100 (or less).

The core principal is to give max throw on the servos without binding and find the appropriate mix input balance to give the desired collective and cyclic pitch ranges.
