I just thought that this mix might help coordinate aileron turns so tue plank doesn't pitch as much.
Yea that's what's making me tease you so much,,,, as usually heli pilots are good with the rudder.. I have been noticing that even outside flying the little Champ that I find myself using the rudder stick more than the aileron stick when in slow flight and taking off and landing and the right stick for flying and whipping it around the sky.. even though both actually control the rudder.. Just shows that even I can remember and use skills that I pick up 40 years ago when flying 4 channel underpowered heavy airplanes that required coordinated turns just to keep them in the air.. To me this is still the most fun, how slow can I make it go without it falling out of the sky... Was flying the Champ today on fresh snow and was able to make many landings without making a ski mark on the snow.. It was a little bit windy,,, And cold but boy was I having fun...
