My thought was that if you want the rudders to still have yaw control while being deployed as an air brake, that canted out would cause an increase in drag in the inboard side of the turn and a reduction in drag on the outside of the turn. This is MY theory, I just have no clue if it will make a difference.
It seems that most turn them in with good results while some turn them out with good results. In all of my searching I have not found a case where one way is superior to another.

I guess I'll see which way is easier to program when I get that far. Maybe I'll set up both on a switch to try it out.
