RE: 9303 DSM
Interesting Don! If I can, I would like to go deeper in that issue...
I remember your suggestion in this great forum, regarding rudder throws, where you recommended to set it so that the plane "barely holds KE". Actually I've followed your suggestion over the last year with my F3A plane, with success I would say. These weeks I started to play again with the throws, trying to discover what kind of setup I will be most comfortable with.
I noticed the following behaviour. I've set up the rudder to hold the KE with about half throttle. This works really fine for slow rolls. But when I perform a four point roll, using about 3/4 throttle, I find it hard to modulate the rudder in order to keep a constant altitude during the first KE. I think the problem is that in the outer portion of the stick travel the servo movement is very non linear, due to the presence of expo (about 70-80%). So with little stick movement the rudder moves a lot. On the contrary, if I enter the manouver with less speed, then I have some difficulty to maintains the second KE - with full rudder throw, due to the speed decrease.
Don, can you suggest to me where I'm wrong?
Do you setup rudder throw to barely keep KE with FULL THROTTLE? Or less?
A huge thanks for your unique willingness....
