Notes:

VERY interesting ! Look at the position of both rudders during take off roll (not static). I have a sequence of this take off roll right up until take off and the rudders stayed in that position. Can anyone explain ? RIAT 06.

I suspect it's to provide additional pitch up force as the aircraft reaches take-off speed, similar to the way airliners trim their horizontal stabilisers for take-off.
