Just measured my current setup which gives the following control surface movements:

Rudder: approx. 28mm each way measured at base of rudder
Elevator: front joiner 8mm up (pitch down) & 6mm down (pitch up)
Aileron: 23mm up, 10mm down (tip end)
Flap: 0 up, 30mm down measured at root end (approx. 50 degrees)

Full Crow uses full flap, 15mm up aileron & 2mm elevator pitch down. (Not yet fully sorted)

I use coupled aileron/rudder set to 50%.

As I can set flight modes, I have launch, cruise & land modes, with crow only available in landing mode.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. I can now make sure I have allowed for this much movement before covering the ailerons and flaps.
