From the Cermark F-18P manual..

SETTING THE CONTROL THROWS

Use the following control travels as a starting point
Ailerons: LOW RATE = 5/8 up and down, HIGH = 7/8
Stabilators (elevators): LOW RATE = 3/4 up and down (at the trailing edge), HIGH = 1
Rudders: 3/4 left and right

I don't remember what I used, but it was probably close to the above. I also used some exponential to make it less touchy around neutral. And, make sure it isn't tail heavy..

I repaired the nose by taping it all back together and adding a layer of glass cloth and epoxy to the inside. I also replaced the O.S. .61 with a Magnum .91 and a Jett muffler..
