Back on topic, every mono is a bit different, depends on prop rotation, posistion in relation to the rudder and the overall design of the boat.

Best to do some practicing in a wide open area, sure, people will look at you funny, but who cares?

No backing and manuevering big cats, way too fun, you can actually paralell part them with only a foot to bow and to stern with some practice.

Cats are much more like driving a Caterpillar and and are a dream for tight spaces!
