It has more than enough travel. You'll want to set the servo travel on the TX to limit the up and down travel on the elevator to 1/2" of up travel and 1/2" of down travel. Set the rudder about the same.

Make that your Low rate if the have a High/Low Rate switch. For the High rate you can set it for more travel but you'll find the controls very touch with the large amount of surface on the elevator and rudder.

Setting the Exponential to 30% or so will also slow the travel for the initial stick movement and help with the learning phase. It makes the plane less likely to be very touchy to the initial stick movements.

You almost ready to fly?

this is a little one with polyhedral wings. keeping all up elevator as possible allows it to parachute straight down with the throttle off. I guess full up elevator works hand in hand with the "up" wing tips. it literally just parachutes straight down nice and level.

Rough up the outside of the CF just a little bit with sand paper, then fill the socket with a two part epoxy and stick it in.

One end should have a wire on with a "Z" bend so you can adjust the length. Or you can use a straight wire with something like the DuBro Mini EZ adjusters. Those off the easiest and quickest length adjustment.

That is a stupid typing error that I ignored! "kf" should read "of".

Blame it one my fat old fingers and failure to check my work.

The battery type and cell count on the battery pack usually dictates that. If is is a 8 cell NiMH it will be about 1.4V per cell fully charged or 11.2V. Most NiMH chargers will get it up a little higher before it cuts the charge off.

The markings on the pack should help sort it out. The nominal voltage for NiMH is 1.2V per cell and fully charged voltages can be 1.4V or even 1.6V per cell in some cases.

11 volts is about right and probably fully charged. The TX will stop charging when they are fully charged. If it is this cell and there are 8 of them it would be about 8 times 1.4 or 11.2V:
