Default Crow Settings

I've been flying RC for over 20 years and am just getting started in RC EDF Jets...
I'm interested in setting up Crow on my new Viper 70mm...

As I'm new to jets (been flying a 50mm Habu) and am getting a 70mm Viper... What crow settings would you recommend for a newbie to EDF jets?
I'm thinking of a 1/8" for the first notch of flap (takeoff flap) and a more aggressive setting for landing flaps, (Full up aileron).

Your input and thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks - Grant

first, why do ya want/need any crow on takeoff?

second, never a good idea to start adding new stuff to the mix with full throw available. start off small, like 1/8-1/4 inch.
see how that feels and go from there.

After 20 years of RC experience you should know the basics, not to complicate the things! "KIS"- (keep it simple), no crow needed for above mentioned low wing load models.
