Anyway, I always assumed Lowe piloted red frame with the help of 8, at least until the naturals OS. 8 is fully capable of piloting an MS afterall.
As for elijah...he got to his current level of skill after painstakingly practicing until he became a slightly higher than average pilot.
The naturals OS, as far as i noe, automates processes that a coordinator has to do by himself. Stuff that would take near inhuman coordination. I believe that even with the OS, naturals are still not as good as a coordinator.
We basically have no idea how a MS cockpit works...but in my opinion, the various controls spread throughout the cockpit control various fucntions that are rarely used. A coordinator can enter commands in sequence so as to perform non-standard actions...such as backflipping or throwing weapons in a particular way (two examples...early in seed kira threw a saber at a bucue. late in destiny, kira threw both rifles into the air in oreder to catch destiny's sword. he also caught them as they fell afterword)
A natural can do this too...but would probably take far too long to make it a smooth, flowing action. therefore the OS might also be a minor AI, that predicts the likely actions the pilot may want.
Four pedals are kinda complicated already...and im betting you have to control things like balance and stuff constantly in someway, hence naturals are too slow.
True...there might be some naturals could still pilot the things by themselves....but probably never as good as a coordinator. Except maybe in the case of Lowe, despite what i said about 8 helping, Lowe's talents might give him some affinity for this sort of thing.
