Use the "Limit" pot on the 401 to adjust the max travel of the tail servo.

EDIT: Here is a good 401 on a Raptor setup writeup

It's been awhile sense I set-up a 401 but I think the travel limits are set on the gyro its self. Hold full rudder in non HH mode set the travel on the top of the gyro, ( there is a plastic screw driver that comes with the gyro, but a small jewlers can work). I'm not sure but I think you set it for both directions.
I'm sure there are others that can give a more accerate directions.
I hope this helps.
