Just noticed something about the PE-2 rudders....one of the variants has rudders that work like they are supposed to - I mean you can really whip that baby around on a dime. Yaw control on takeoff is phenomenal. The other variant that I tried had the same old lame rudder control that most of the other planes have - full deflection on takeoff with the tail up barely yaws the nose at all. Anyone else notice this discrepancy?
