That's how I do it too and it works just fine.

The Canary is a very fine bird. I have flown it again just yesterday (and the day before).

I remember a German Thread, where people built ailerons into the Canary. You can do that, but it is not necessary.
Instead, people at the airfield are often wondering how THAT rudder works.
(The rudder flaps are only moving from the center position to the outward position)
