Just about ready to cover an old Royal P-51D kit. Can anybody tell me the proper control throws for this model? I can't seem to find them in the instruction pages or plans.

Control Throws for 1/3 scale Barth YMF-5

Can someone help me out with some recommended throw distances or angles for my 1/3 scale WACO YMF-5 (Peter Barth)?
The information that came with the kit is less than helpful.
