Boosted end points, VS. longer servo arms..

Hi Guys...

A quick question for you.

The plane in my avatar is an Aero-Works .90-1.20 size Yak 54 that I have converted to electric power. It flies great, but it lacks in rudder authority. I have the pull-pull cables hooked to the inner holes on the control arms on the rudder, and on the outer holes on the longest arms that came with the Hitec HS-7985MG digital servos (essentially the same length as the Dubro long arms for these servos).

Today, I was checking the throw on the rudder, and found that the end point adjustments were set to 100$, but with my JR X9303, I can set them higher. I set them up for 145%, and get a lot more throw on my rudder, however, I am getting a fairly pronounced buzz at the extreme ends of the throw. Or, I also have some longer carbon fiber extended servo arms that I can use.

In your opinions, which way is better?? to over drive the servos, or to use the extended arms??

Thanks in adavance...
