Default Tail setup questions

I am rebuilding my Trex 500 after a mech fail crash. I replaced the tail servo with a MKS 8910A+ the first question is the MKS servo is on the list in the setup software but the Hz is wrong, the SK has it listed as 333Hz but the servo is 560Hz and even going to the custom area you dont get the option of 560Hz / 760us is this a problem? second question is i went through the tail setup and when i start it up, i can center the tail blades but the servo slowly ticks to nose right (slightly, but does not stay at center), no movement, no TX imput. so this makes me think the answer to question one is this servo is a problem.. any help would be apriciated.

=] 333 is fine so wait for update here to have this included. also the servo will "tick" while in setup mode, that's not an issue either.

maybe post the log up showing mechanical fail would be worthwhile,

Thanks for the help. The tail is moving left of center (nose right) and i'm not in setup mode. done with the tail setup, fired it up normaly, centered the tail (SK not hooked to the computer) and in moves just slightly to the left in a ticking motion.

the original crash was not a SK problem. the head came apart and took out the antirotation bracket and that was the end of the flight

=] again it's fine, if the slider went all the way in one direction on the pad, it's fine. that's what gyro's do on the pad in HH.
