Yes, it is true for slow speed flight as well. The difference is the ratio may be a bit different if you are using a camber preset. So if you have some initial camber you might not need as much elevator to camber mix. I haven't looked into the exact ratios. I typically use the same 1 to 1 ratio with good success in my thermal mode which may have 2 to 4 mm of preset camber. The nice thing about using the elevator to camber mix is you don't need to have camber on a slider. The camber is automatically tuned appropriately with elevator input.
