On my stingray, I have the rudders canted inward. Very effective. Not sure of the throw but it is all I can get. I use it in dead calm conditions with the main speed brake. No trim change to speak of either, not sure if you canted them outwards if it would be different

I don't use it with any sort of headwind, not needed.

I set up my last Bobcat with rudders canted outward (a_lot_of throw with 8411s on the rudders) and when I deployed them the Bobcat just stopped! Totally unnecessary on the Bobcat!
