Okay.  This is good information to have.
Rather than experimenting, are there ballpark figures for me to use?
trim tab 15 centimeters wide (hinge pin is 15cm)
	and it is 5 centimeters long.  This makes a square
	area of 75cm^2.
servo accuracy:  How fine does my resolution need to be?  Should
	I resolve to .1degree? one degree?

Do I have enough area on my trim tab?
