Control throw refers to the amount the surface moves from the neutral position...

This is a variable dependent on the use the plane will have.

The throw is normally measured in mm at the bit of the control surface that is furthest from the hinge. So for an elevator, you may see a recommendation like 4mm up and 3mm down.

Throws are not nrmally measured in degrees because of the difficulty of measuring them.

The only silly question is the one you don't ask!

After all, none of the model aircraft terms are coded into the genes!
