re rudder:

We tried this in the sim:

FL 350 M .81 normal law,

Quickly apply full rudder, the a/c rapidly banks to 50-60 degrees bank, with only 4 degrees of rudder travel available.

Conversely, an engine failure in cruise is counteracted with the lightest touch of rudder, maybe 1 inch and can barely be seen on the flt controls page.

Respect the rudder, it is a very powerful control.
