Full roll on my yak is too fast to keep up with so I'm trying to decide whether or not to learn how to hold half or 3/4 stick aileron or use dual rates to allow full aileron stick deflection (and maybe 60% aileron control surface throw)
Full aileron and high rates (as high as they'll go - I think I even have my end point adjustment at 150). It's definitely fast but the more rudder and elevator you use the more it will slow things down. I can't view my video from work but if I recall correctly, there are times through the video that the roll rate slows down... that's when I'm giving more rudder and elevator to turn sharper.
It's all timing. Usually if I get the first rudder input in there quick enough the rest just kinda flows. I pick out a spot on the plane to look for as a key to make sure my fingers are in the right spot. That way if I get behind (or ahead even) I can adjust and keep the rollers going.
However... when I first started learning rollers I did use dual rates to help slow things down for me. I can't say whether that actually helped or hurt me to be honest. All I know is that my rollers started looking a LOT better once I went back to full rates.
