Default XXtreme head set up question

Set up the head with the link measurements exactly as per instructions but they are way out.

With servos centred the pitch is way off. Before I start messing with the links what values have you got and did you find the measurements way off?

Yeah, that's the way you have to do it, different servos has the shaft at different levels etc.
I had to adjust mine 1 mm or so.

You look at it and think instantly it's cast but we have it direct fromMikado via DD it's not so that's good enough for me

Others may like the look of it but not me, would it put me off buying one, absolutely not!!!

Oh I'm not doubting you man... just curious since as you said, it looks cast. I havenít seen it in person (yet), so I'm just going by pictures which donít always do the job justice. I guess its bead polished...

I guess we really wonít know till somebody tanks one really hard.

It looks cast, even close up with dimples, but if you look REALLY close you can see other marks from each turn turn of the router.

No, I will not cut mine in half to make sure
