Putting the plane into a turn enhances the likelihood of one tip stalling worse than the other, resulting in the plane corkscrewing into the ground.

Sight down each wing panel or lay it on a flat bench and measure tip LE and TE heights above the bench to know for sure. Let us know what you find

Hi John, Yes I will be rechecking the wings to be sure they are straight among other things.
I am taking a breather from the Falcon at the moment and working on a few builds I had set aside during the Falcon construction. Rest assured I will be looking at it in the new year.
