I'm confused, but it could be my newness to TD flying.

Thanks, Target
Hey Target, from all my reading on here, using rudder instead of diff is a little more efficient.

Of course, some planes just don't do well with zero diff.

I have found that when I am flying thermal circle, I am not looking directly at plane but more like looking at the circular path the plane is flying. This visualiztion of the flight path makes it easier for me to see if fuse lines up with that path and know how much rudder to add to keep fuse lined up.

In other words, my focus is not on the plane itself but more open to the space the plane is flying in.

Anyone else fly like this? It has helped me.

Lastly, one thing I noticed is that I also need to work on my vision. Especially my depth perception.
