Default Collective Pitch Setup

Hey everyone, I have a quick question for ya'll. I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. When I setup the maximum collective pitch for my 600E Pro, I can get it to +12 degrees, but when I take it to maximum negative I may get a reading of -13 to -14 degrees pitch. Is there something that I don't have adjusted exactly right or is my swashplate not perfectly level? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Lower the swash a bit. ie take all 3 servo linkage rods and shorten them by two turns.
Check that its level and check the +/- pitch. Adjust the linkage rods from the swash to the blade grips to match it.

OR just go fly unless you're pedantic about it, it'll fly just fine, and absolutely hammer if you do a negative climb out. More important is that when you are at center stick you're also at zero pitch.
Whats happening is the center point on the servo and the 'zero pitch' position of the swash are just a bit out.

you can modify your servo travel for pitch to get more + in there
I fly +14/-14 on my 600efl
if you modify your travel just do a quick walk thru on your fbl controller setup to make sure it see's the changes correctly and centers your sticks right

When I am that close I would just go out 1 or 2 turns on the head linkage, inner swash to blade grip.
