Default Optic 6 elevon programming

Hi, I am having trouble getting adequate aileron throw using elevons. I went into elevon programming on my Optic 6 and set everything to +100%. Ch1 is right elevon, Ch2 is left. EPA for channels 1 and 2 are set to +125%. I get full deflection when I use the elevator - both elevons go up or down about 125%, but I only get about half the deflection using ailerons. I don't need all that elevator throw and use D/R at 50% to cut it down, but I can't figure out how to get full aileron deflection.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Best to set up all models with accurate mechanical linkage and use TX system to fine tune.
Ensure the elevon horns are parallel to hinge line and try a shorter horn position on the elevon horns or in need a longer horn on servo. At 100% EPA, measure amount of throw on elevator only then Aileron only, both should be the same, if different try a model "Reset" and start again (or use a different TXmodel number) - possible a previous or adjusted mix still in system.
E.P.A - A.T.V - Dual Rates differences, cautions and arming ESC
On most known elevon only models, elevator throw is typically reduced to 50% compared to aileron throw.
