Default Control Throws for 40-sized Cermark F-20???

Hi guys,

I have the 40-sized Cermark F-20 and want to maiden it. The manual states:

Elevator throw 20-25 degrees
Aileron throw 20-25 degrees


For you guys with the Cermark F-20, is that 20-25 degrees up and 20-25 degrees down or is that 20-25 total travel (i.e. 10-12.5 degrees up and 10-12.5 degrees down)??

My question is: what would be the up/down deflections of the elevators and ailerons in inches (set conservatively for early flights)?

....3/8'' up and 3/8'' down on the ailerons, and 1/2'' up and 1/2'' down on the elevator.
