Model Cubs fly funny by design. I am flying a Great Planes cub with a 76" wing so it is about the same size as yours. It is very unstable in yaw, requiring constant minor corrections to hold a heading perfectly. I don't know if your plane has "barn door" ailerons but mine does and even with some differential the planes has tremendous adverse yaw, so my turns are made with a 50-50 mix of rudder/aileron. I'm not running a computer radio on my cub but if I were I'd put about a 50% mix of aileron-rudder. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the cub as much as my hopped-up Extra, but to master the plane you must constantly use all four channels. Have fun.
