Default Crow

I have the FMS AS-17 Sailplane 2500 mm. I changed some of the set up so I could have Crow on my ailerons. I will be flying at different locations. Some of them more confined than others. I also have flaps which I'm just going to leave as flaps .What is standard or what do you guys recommend for Crow in my ailerons? I was going to have the first notch of flaps just normal and then the last notch of flaps with the Crow.
Thanks

I have a crow setup on all my sailplanes. Typically about 15 degrees up is about all you need. Any more then that and you start loosing some roll authority. I also strongly suggest proportional flaps. I always have mine on the throttle stick and put the throttle on a side slider. Having flaps on the throttle really helps control your glide slope to landing. Throttle can be pretty much an on/off deal as you are only using power to get to altitude.

Also donít forget some elevator mixing. Planes tend to pitch up once crow is used, especially the more flaps you use, compared to the aileron throws.
