 +Different brands of RC-servos tend to require different timings, which can lead to the servos moving more or less than desired or that they are capable of.  This dialog can help address these differences.

 Note: the lower limit values control how far clockwise the servos move, with more negative being farther clockwise. The upper limit values control how far counter-clockwise the servos move, with more positive being farther counter-clockwise. Note: the lower limit values control how far clockwise the servos move, with more negative being farther clockwise.
