Great Planes S.E.5a build

Dear Yamakawazuki,

I am 2/3 finished with my S.E.5a. Have you flown yours yet? If so how does she fly?
I have a build question to run past you. The instructions say 8.7 mm on the rudder and elevator survo arms. When I did that and tested the throw distances, I was way over the low throw recommended distances. I am going to move the push rod connections way in and see what that gives me. Did you experience the same thing?

Sincerely,

Modelmaster2001
