So this plane flies with the drag rudders open? This will induce drag for yaw stability so you will not be on the sticks all the time.

The system I was thinking about is much more complicated as the drag rudders are closed and electronics are used to keep yaw stable. But the plane I am designing does not have the luxury of long wings with the big moment arm. Still may go with drag rudders deployed part way with electronics so servo duty cycle is reduced.

Keep up the great work.
