Why is the crazy max have 0% dihedral, but my slow stick does, and wont turn?

i just noticed...... I really am only familiar w/ gws planes, but while on ALLeRC.com, i noticed the "crazy max". It has a no dihedral wing. Why is this plane designed like this and able to turn correct;ly?


heres the previous post concerning this topic:


I built it perfectly (at least i hope i did).

The only mod i did was to leave very little dihedral. I cut a styrofoam piece and laid it into the center of the wing fold, and epoxied it together. I would say it has about 1/4 dihedral of what it should have if you just folded out as stock.

The problem i am having is that it is difficult to turn and maneuver. It will loop and dive very easily. but turning is almost impossible. it very odd.

Am i screwed? Did lessening the dihedral destroy the flying characteristics of this plane? I did it so it wold be a little MORE manuverable, when in fact, it is the opposite.

it has a stock 300 w/ 1260, 2s2p etec 700 lipolys and naro servos. What gives? My other one flies great (just really beat-up)
