I can't go back as far as some - but Rudder was on nearly all my models in 70 .. 80 ... 90's. But I was only the owner of 3 - 3 channel rudder machine. All but those used ailerons and were 4 channel at least. The 3 were 2 gliders and 3rd a basic trainer.
Ineffective rudders ? No I would disagree - all mine were similar to what we have today ... being glow powered meant no difference as I see it. Yes the models were heavier ... but that's all.
