Sounds like the way I've set up my twin rudder boats. Hard to say on the deflection, 45* to start. But it depends on rudder size, boat weight and bottom friction. It is normal for the boat to turn sharper in one direction due to prop torque. Realize that turning relies on air volume and air velocity across the rudders, keep the throttle up for best turning. Alternatively, blip the throttle hard to assist in low speed turns.
