I am trying to find information on how to properly set the flaperon position. I have recently completed a set of high strength turnbuckles to assist in the setting process. I have looked through all the documentation I have and can't find any pictures or angle information, maybe I am too OCD but I want to get this correct. I started by laying a straight edge on the top rear of the wing and adjusting to that but when I have completed the settings I don't have much flaperon movement with the flaps down. Does anyone have any suggestions or angles I can use for comparison?

You should find that information on a single page at the front of the manual. You will want to check updates in case angles have changed with later revisions.
