Thanks for the heads up Brad. I'll look that up! The tail rotor authority is a bit weak in my opinion. Individual machines seem to vary-I've tried to set mine exactly by the book but still it takes an awful lot of the available pedal. Maybe because I'm using close to full power a lot in the hover. When I'm solo I have a decent amount of reserve.
