How to measure control surface throw?


Old and Bold RC PILOT
I am building the FT Legacy. I've misplace the foam board throw gauge. How else can I measure this? Thanks!
It can be quite simple if you have a printer!

Download the plans and print out the throw gauge at 100%. Cut out the paper gauge and use that or even glue it to a scrap of FB then cut it out and you have a replacement gauge!

Have fun!

Simplest use a protractor find the degrees on line or the plans. Me I set up 3 different throws in my transmitter on a three postion switch, low rates, medium rates, and high rates gives me more options when I am flying .
