minimal rudder movement from guardian


I have my new guardian and I installed it in a chipmunk. I am using a a DX6i with a Ar8000 receiver.
I have the gain set all the way on all three axis.
I have the rudder set to full throw in the transmitter setup.
I do not have dual rates or any other feature set up in the radio.
Simple, straightforward 3 axis fixed wing setup.

The guardian blinks for a 2D setting.

Anyway, when I twirl the plane in its various axis I get good movement in pitch and roll but just a smidge in rudder. Not sure why.
I do get full rudder throw with my stick.

I expected the rudder to move similar to the pitch and roll. It does not. It deflects so little I doubt that it would do much good. I was hoping it would be useful for my takeoffs with my tail draggers.

Any ideas? how do I get the guardian to give more yaw movement to the rudder?
