170mm from the trailing edge of the wing is the correct position, any further back causes a lot of pitch instability. You can go 5mm forward of this position no problem.

Elevator throws around 25mm with expo programmed in, ailerons about 20mm to start and feel it out. you need plenty of elevator at low speed but not much at high speed so expo helps remove some of the snappiness.
