Factory I don't know but I use A degree meter and set up my stunt planes for 12 and 18 degrees for high and low as my starting point then trim the plane the way I like it after each flight. It's A good starting point.

The factory throws are as follows;
Ailerons: Hi Rate 3/4in in Low Rate 9/16in
Elevator: Hi Rate 1 1/4in Low Rate 13/16in
Rudder: Hi rate 3/4in Low rate 1/2in

Be careful with Hi Rate elevator, the plane is inherently "snappy" at Hi speed.

Good luck,
