Has Armadillo looked at a more balanced vane offset? Rudders are normally 1/3 leading 2/3 trailing for a balanced rudder with good feel, low force to actuate but avoiding the posibility of being pushed over centre.
What about positive stops as from memory past 30 degrees of movement the blade is more a drag surface than a flow diverter?

Did you mean to post this in the Armadillo Q&A thread?
But I believe your questions were all answered in the update posted to their site on Sunday...
