Post subject:  servo motor replacement setting questions


I broke one of my servo (the short cable one) during a bad crash: it still turned but with a clicking sound. I did not notice it immediately so I kept flying a bit afterwards.
I ordered new ones, I'm during the setting, and there is this step about centering the servo (basically unplug motors, power on to 20%, and the servo are centered, then attach them).
However, they are in a completely different position (I was expecting them to be at the same position). And now I'm wondering if I'm doing something so I'm writing here before I glue everything...
- a picture of my controller (because as you could see some of the correction are at their maximum, and I wonder if I'm not in a state where I could try to fix that)
- a picture of the servo when they are "centered" according to the procedure.

thanks in advance for your kind help.

File comment: New Servo, the original position is set like the existing one. However once centred they are in a very different position...

You can actually center them by plugging them into the correct servo output and plugging in the battery. The instant they get power they center. Do not take the QS out of safe mode. They may be slightly different in position compared to your previous servos simply because of the spline alignment on the servos and servo arms. They look correct in the pictures.
