Most servo nomenclature states maximum torque is given at a set distance from the centre of the output shaft which is normally 10mm. in effect the greater the distance on the servo arm the torque applied at the control surface reduces.
 
All this is at 1G, when the model is in the air who knows what G forces the control surfaces have to withstand (blow back)? My advice is to stick with what the manufacturer recommends i.e. JR DS9501 max torque 6.2kg/1cm.
 
Going back to control surface deflection the equation is simple.
 
The movements given in the instructions are just a starting point? Just fly the model if you feel its too sensitive reduce the throws or visa versa and don't use too much expo as you will find all your movement will come in all at once.
 
Obviously this will take a number of flights to get right and also is schedule dependant
