Forces on Rudder at launch

I'm building a NEOS with rudder - using the spring and string method for controls - I was just wondering what side I need to have the control horn to compensate for forces on the rudder during launch.

is there more force on the pilot side or the other side?

The initial launch loading is on the opposite side of the rudder to the launch peg. If you are a right hand launcher, throwing peg is on left wingtip and rudder horn and linkage should be on the right side of plane.
