I have transmitters both with and without dual rates.

Flying my EP Hobbico Super-Cub I use a Tx without dual rates.

Flying my EP Park Flyer's P-51 Mustang I use as Tx with dual-rates.

Each plane has very different flight charactistic when in the air. The Cub flies realatively slowly and has limited ability to perform aerobatics. The P-51 is the exact opposite and will challenge most anyone's flying ability by it's very design.

Additionally the P-51 spins a four-bladed prop rather than the Cub's two-blade.

Indra:

I fly a Futaba EX-6 w/dual rates and expos on my P-51. I've yet to try the expos because the dual-rates seem to do what I want them to do. (at 74, I should try expos?) Dual-rates allow me to do a pretty respectable Cuban 8's.

At lower altitudes i return to "low" on the rates. Guess why?

I find dual rates very helpful when flying 1/2a models. While running, you do do not need much input to move the airplane. When it shuts off, you need much more throw to turn the airplane.

Slower airflow over the wings = less lift = more throws to get the same effect.

nitro:

My Futaba EX-6 also has model memory. I got the Futaba from TH on a promotional special for, IIRC, $150.

Considered a Spectrum but TH doesn't carry them. I'm pleased with the Futaba because it will do even more than what I want it to do. I haven't even begun to experience any limitations.

"Fly what you like and like what you fly" suits me fine.
