Default Stryker Aileron/elevator mechanical setup for first flight?

Can someone post a pic of the flaps in the position they should be mechanically set at if looking at the wing tip from the end?

Are the supposed to be level with wing bottom or a few degrees up?

I'm doing my setup on a new PNP and this is my first plane .

I'm converting over from helicopters!
Thanks

Is it a C or B stryker?

Start with a tad of up
see how it flys. I keep mine
level. It seems to fly better at high speeds

I can't post a pic right now, but they should be set up to be even with the bottom of the wing or you can use the wing's molding line like I did.

This doesn't have to be perfect, just close. Because if you think about it or you will eventually do it without knowing it, if its out of sync slightly you will trim it evenly on your first flight. Being that each elevon uses a separate servo, when you do aileron trim each side will become equal, and when you do elevator trim, they will move up and down to the right spot.

Try that and see how it works for you. Hope this helps. Good luck. If not let me know and I'll take some pics for you.

ADDED:

Okay maybe I missed the real question. Set it up so it's even with the bottom of the wing but before you launch it for the first time, it helps to have a little up elevator so it won't dive on you before you can get your hands on the sticks. Like MARK said, start with a tad of up, that's what I did to prepare for my first launch. Now I have it trimmed for very very slight downward flight at 3/4 throttle. Before every launch, I just trim it up and then go back to my in-flight trim setting manually. Hope this helps.
