Yes, I remember your positive flight report and I am not disputing that or that the Guardian can work well on a 3 channel wing.
I am just trying to say that on a 3 channel plane, just as the pilot cannot control the 3 axes independently, the Guardian cannot also. This is due to the lack of flight control surfaces, not due to a limitation of the Guardian.
For example, with a 3 channel elevon plane (no rudder), it will be hard for the Guardian (or pilot) to do a flat turn as without a rudder channel, it will be hard to turn if the Guardian (or pilot) keeps the wings flat/level.
