Fully agree. Nice thing about dual rates, and expo, you can change how sensitive the model is to transmitter stick travel without messing around with the servo arms and clevises.

As for aileron throw, I've got a Vyper model that, if you use recommended aileron throw, it will rotate about 4 times per second. It's impossible to stop it right side up with that level of control. This model has 50%, 70% and 100% on triple rates, plus about 30% expo on all of them.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
