Although I could probably find the answer for this question online, I figured you guys may know. I am attempting to program my Blade 400 into my DX8.

What is the purpose of inputting 'negative value' into the swashmix settings?  I am having a tough time understanding why there are recommendations that say -75% Ail, -75% Elev, and +85% Pitch as listed in the Blade 400 setup sheets.  I am not sure what this does and would love clarification.....especially before I fly it.
After inputting the settings in the Blade 400 including the reverse settings I had one servo that was not responding correctly.  When I went away from what the manual is asking for and reversed one of the servos from where the manual said it should be, everything appeared to function correctly.
I checked to make sure that my servo wires are installed into the rx correctly....and they are.
I guess I'm wondering why I needed to reverse a servo that was listed as normal.  I am programming the 400 into my DX8 and the instructions are for a DX6i....but I can't see that being any kind of issue.
Would messing with the 'negative values' work similar to reversing the function of the servo?

Didn't figure you to be a facebook fan.  Where the heck have you been?  I will probably need a bit of your expertise when I set these things up for my next heli flight.

I've been working 60 hours a week for IBM. It's been a busy summer... I've been flying in the back yard at my new place though. My yard backs onto a couple acres of high school field.
