Flew just FINE last time -- any idea why this is happening now?

Oh, and it banks right even w/o power -- i.e. gliding down....

Hi Steve:

I had something similar happen after a rough landing in some wind. Check the pushrods where they enter the control horns. My rudder horn had slipped ever so slightly up the "Z" bend to cause the problem with mine. I reshaped the "Z" bend slightly and all is well now.
