Everytime I setup my cookbook settings and lay it on table I find the horizontal axis needs very SLIGHT trimming... is this negligible in real world use? I don't really have time to get it precise everytime.
Do the Merlin settings have to be so precise everytime?

In my experience with the Merlin 2, it needs to be trimmed pretty much constantly--particularly after putting it down and picking it back up. I got pretty good at compensating for slightly off trim for those times when retrimming just isn't feasible. You *may* have a better experience if you invest in a Merlin tabletop stand (or a C-stand or Steadistand) so that it can remain in its "flying" configuration when not in use.
I never had the advantage of cookbook setting for my camera, so at least you have that going for you.
