Default Booster tabs.

To find the magic spot, I move in one hole at a time with the pushrod to the horn on the tab. When you hit the spot the ail response goes up drastically. The airspeed shouldn't make much difference as the airspeed/ thrust over the tab is also increased. These are not fast planes, 3D, but very large throws. But even at speed is where they really show up, as without them, the servo thrust effect is diminished.
If anyone wants to try it, I did a lot of research on them before I started and the area of the tab was 10 to 15 % of the control surface area.
I also use them on the rudder and elev on some planes.
