The book says 4 to 5 1/4 inches behind the leading edge of wing at its center.

Low rates
Ailerons 3/4" each way
Elevator 1/2 each way
Rudder all you can get
50% flaparon mix

High rates all you can get. I also would use alot of expo at first if you have never flown a profile before.

After I got use to mine I just flew it on high rates all the time the Su-Do was my first profile and I sure did like it.

You don't want aileron differential, not for 3d. Flaperons is what Hitec calls it, I guess it could be called alevator- flaps mix. Check the manual for your radio. What you want is flaps (ailerons) to lower when elevator raises, and vice-versa. Gives tighter loops, quicker pitch response. It'll probably fly O.K. without it, but if the manual calls for it, I'd give it a try. You are using a computer radio, right? I would think that any computer radio would have a flaperon mix. I have the Flash 5, which is like the cheapest one, and it has it. Standard radio gear will fly a profile O.K. , but to get the most out of it, you will want the flaperons and some expo on high rates. Hope this helps.
