Set your low rates to have about 1/4" deflection and a bit more for your high rates.

Dial in Expo on your TX to avoid over-sensitivity.

I like higher roll rates so I set up more deflextion on the ailerons.

IMHO it's not worth doing.

You don't use the rudders when flying this plane, and because it will fly sooo slowly on landing ( under power ), you can land it width-wise on a runway during a cross wind.
