So far I have found the following settings to be to my liking.

-Tracking sensitivity set to zero

-Accel./decal. Set to zero (I played around with this one a lot and didn’t seem to see my difference in my actual results as I changed between 0, 1 and 2)

-AI Servo 1 image priority set all the way to Focus (sometimes this causes a little delay in the time when you fully press the shutter and when the picture is actually taken.  It took me a little while to get used to it but it did increase my keeper rate)

-AI Servo 2 image priority set all the way to Focus

One of the main differences I am noticing between my 7D and 70D is that the 7D seems to hunt more often when trying to lock onto a flying bird.  The 70D does still hunt sometimes but it does consistently hunt less frequency in a given set of shooting conditions.
