From the NTSB/Rudder thread, a question for 330 pilots. RTLU fail/prior limit is reported as 7.9degrees, full sweep, by inspection. The Limit in a/s> 272knots is the last one before Law switch, but even at 4degrees each direction, with no modulation of rate of deflection, and a fully powered Rudder, what is the effect of rapid cycling of Rudder: at m.82, at m.82 with a stop @4degrees, and with a 7.9 degree deflection (stop to stop) ? Under what conditions would the Rudder be used at that velocity?

JD-EE, For purposes of this discussion, and a proposed fit of enhanced Comm over areas of low likelihood of FDR/CVR recovery, wouldn't ice be considered a similar deck as land?
