I only put about 5-6 flights on it last winter and never really goy it dialed in. It just seemed like I had to force it to turn......i don't know, it's hard to explain.

It's not hard to understand,though....I suggested using aileron as the master,since most people have a locked left thumb.Since they mostly are only aware of the right stick,let's do the mixing there.
The problem with mixing anything,is that when you bank,and the airplane starts to turn,the faster wing wants to roll the airplane on over....So then you relax the input,and the rudder can't hold the turn.
If you mix the rudder and aileron sticks in your brain,both thumbs can work in unison to make co-ordinated turns-move one,move the other...eventually you'll make cross controlled adjustments as second nature.
