However, it also depends on what plans you want.
Eg. In scenarios, certain plans like Char Zaku II, Dozle Zabi's Zaku II can only be obtained from Expert difficulty, whereas plans like Zaku II (Command) can be obtained from ANY difficulty.
But if you're talking about those normal plans, then yea, hard would be a better choice.
