Sloppy controls and risk of flutter. I'm not too sure how much a vertical surface is effected by flutter, vs a lifting surface. 

To me, probably more sensitive due to the fact it's loading is similar in cruise both right and left sides. I don't want to find out and prefer tighter controls if I'm able to improve them.

Flutter has nothing to do with control input or slop , It has to do with balance , Also , a rudder is a lifting surface , it just creates lift , in the horizontal axis...

Thanks! Makes sense. I'd still rather have it tight. There is a null spot, but I imagin the rudder has enough trim tab in it where it would always stay against one side of the rod end load. 

Have fun with the gas saw!
