Dirty Birdy 60 control throws

Hi Gang,
well flying season is coming to the PNW (rainy western Washington) and
during the winter I resurected my old Bridy Dirty Birdy 60, problem is I
can't seem to remember the control surface throws. Could somebody who is
familiar with this plane please refresh my memory on them?
Thanks,
Regards

Re: Dirty Birdy 60 control throws

A good starting point would be:

Elevator: +/- 1/2" (measured at root)
Ailerons: +/- 1/4"
Rudder: All I can get! Usually +/- 1&1/2"

This will get you in the ball park. These would be the "low rate" settings
if you have DR. Add 25% for high rates. CG should be around 40% MAC or a
hair over 6" back from the LE at the center of the wing.
