Default Grip control direction

I'm curious about what the direction of control on grips does, meaning whether the grip control leads or lags. If it lags, the swash would move down to increase pitch, or on the tail the servo would pull the control rod rather than push. Has anyone experimented with this?

Either can work but almost all set ups have the links on the leading edge as standard. Unless you have some specific reason to change it there isn't really anything to be gained by swapping.

I was just curious if flight would be altered at all? It so happens when I changed the gear last time, and the blades, I connected it up wrong. I also had to change the servos, so was playing around with reversing stuff anyways. This would also explain my issue of attempting autorotation, as if I had tried autorotation with the setup correctly, it would likely have decreased pitch, though I am not sure of that. I didn't notice any differences in flight, but I was just wondering if there would be any change in flight.

On the main rotor it shouldnt make any difference to the way the heli flies. On the tail it may make some diffrence as it may alter the available pitch slider travel giving more one way than the other.
