Escapade .61 Control Throw

Hey guys i recently purchased my Great Planes Escapade .61 Got everything together last night and i must say i am very please with how well this came out of the box and how easy it went together...Any way, getting of topic, im trying to set the control throws for the plane and something just doesnt seem right...the manual calls for a rudder left/right throw of 1-3/4" or 19 degrees (low rate) and 2-1/2" or 28 degrees (high rate). The problem im having is 19derees does not match up with 1-3/4"..This just seems like a big throw for a low rate also.. With my servo maxed and my dual rate maxed i will never be able to get to the high rate on this plane...anyone have any info on what i might be doing wrong or a tip to measure this better... Im basically laying a ruller flat about halfway up the rudder and centering everything..The measuring 1-3/4" to each side...
