Tomahawk Designs Viper JET EDF elevator rates?

Just curious what kind of rates you´ve got on the elevetor?
I have about 5mm (3/16"). both up and down, and I can´t get the rates any higher. (well I could, but that involves cutting out the servo and attach another servo-horn).
But will 5mm do? , coming to think of it my Squall also have small rates on the elevator.. but flies good with them.

I'm assuming you have the foamie. I'm thinking about this one. It looks like a reasonable build. I've built several Squalls. I don't know if you've flown her yet, but what is your opinion of this EDF.

An the subject of throws, they have this on one of the web sites:

The deflections are given in the manual only in degree. We have flown the following settings and that aileron +20 / -9 mm (about 54% QR Differenztierung), elevator and rudder + / - 12 mm. Have we given to all controls 35% Expo. Seems like very high-rate to me.
