I have a question for those of you with rudder peddles...

Is it ez'er landing an airplane with full peddles as opposed to just a twisty grip joystick?

2nd question: do you find it aids in aiming your guns?

Sometimes when shooting I don't use rudder input because of the whole twisting joystick aiming thing...Might it help speed up my alignment of target and sight?

Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

p.s. I read the chapter on compensating for side slip in Adolf Gallants pamphlet on fighter gunnery, and was wondering about your thoughts on the subject. Do rudder pedals help "speed up aiming" and do you find the side slipping to be a factor in "throwing off" your aim?
