ParkZone Super Decathlon brushless - control surface throws - need some setup help


I have a ParkZone Super Decathlon brushless and am trying to setup the throws \ deflection for the rudder and elevator.

I know enough to know that more is not always better on the hi rates but thats about where my knowledge stops.

I looked in the manual and searched without results.

Was looking to see if anyone had good recommended deflection measurememts in mm for low and hi rates similar to the information here on page 33-34

I flew a buddy's Decathlon the other day and we flew it would about 1/4" throws and it flew like a champ.. I was skeptical of how well it flew.. After I flew it, I ordered one..

thanks - great review

What I was trying to figure out is if there was a point of diminishing return when getting a lot of throw on the control surfaces

I have mine maxed out on the control surface, but didn't touch the servo adjustments. It flies real nice like that.
