Rudder throw

Has anyone modified their rudder to get more throw? My son is not satisfied with the knife edge performance of our viperjet and is wondering if more rudder might solve the problem.

I have the Airtech-Germany made gear that CARF sells. So, to better refine my question, does anybody know of a set of electric brakes that will work with the size wheel supplied by CARF?

Xantos,

I am using a servo to close the door.

Attached is a photo to give you an idea of how I mounted the hinges to the fuse.

I installed the wing reinforcement kit from CARF - the instructions were great and other than it being a bit messy wasn't very hard.
