Just depends on flying style. 3d rates are going to be a lot higher than precision on the elev and rudder. If you have a dual purpose plane then dual rates are almost mandatory. On my 3d plane, only need one rate. On my IMAC plane, I have 3 flight conditions: 1 for general flight, 2 for rollers (less aileron and more rudder and elevator), and 3 for landing (more elevator and rudder and idle down).Yes, aside from Expo (which I have slowly been removing) I don't use dual rates or mixing :smash:
But to each his own.
It is!! I flew the IAC sportsman sequence in an Extra 300 and it was amazing. The stick has no centering and the ailerons are as light as you can imagine. The mixing just comes natural when you are in the plane because of your perspective and feel.Nope, it would be a blast though. However, I have flown an F-14 and an F-117 on separate occasions in actual military full motion simulators but that's as close as I've come to full scale aerobatics.
