Because there’re no co-pilots in IF except NPC ones on small aircrafts, I have to bring up the gear myself whilst slowly releasing the rudder deflection back to its normal position. I find this difficult while only using my right hand.
During crosswind takeoff, I use my rudder and its deflection depends on the wind velocity. For moderate crosswind, I have to deflect my rudder almost to the max and because the rudder and gear control is on the RHS of my device it would only make sense for me to use my right hand for both controls. Hence, I’m unable to just let go of the rudder and bring the gear up once my aircraft is airborne as this will cause the nose of my aircraft to roll left and right and I have to counteract the action with opposite rolling.
I’ve tried hand-flying takeoff without fixing autopilot heading and even tried low sensitivity. Low sensitivity seems to work, but with that I’m unable to rotate my aircraft with the same force as normal sensitivity to the desired AOA for lift.
