Entirely up to you, I have set mine up so that all my dual rates are activated by one switch, usually one near the corners but still on the front of the TX, ie not near the back on the shoulders.

I set mine up based on condition - 100% in Idle up, something less in Normal.

I agree. Unlike a 'plane, where you might change individual rates, with a heli you want a consistent feel to the whole craft in different modes; cuts down on the surprise factor.

So, as ph7 (balanced and flying helis) says, set the rate with the mode.

I have it assigned to FM switch. I keep DR to 100% and I use different EXPO values.

Probably a bit off topic but I don't use dual rates. Instaead, I tend to use expo (sometimes) so that I allways know that maxing a stick will allways give the same response. A single switch changes all expo settings.

Depends.... what are you trying to accomplish with your dual rates?

If you're wanted a certain pirouette rate at full left or right rudder for example you probably want a dual rate condition.

If you're wanting to "detune" the response of the heli to make it fly smoother around center but still have full deflection of input then consider using exponential instead.
