Hi

The only tweek I have made on my t-craft is -40% expo on the elevator and it flies very nice. Maybe it could use some aileron differential like any other high wing, but for the time being, I just coordinate my turns. My tx is a Hitec Aurora 9 by the way, but that shouldnt matter.

Not aileron expo... ELEVATOR expo... :-) and remember its -40% (minus not plus) but to be honest, the plane flies very well "out of the box". I have expo on the elevator on all my planes, because i think it makes it easier to do those smooth landings.. so its much more my personal preference than a nessecity.
If I were you I would just make sure that cg is correct... the plane flies very gentle and predictable...
Whats your motor setup?

Alright.
Propsize?
Sounds like a good setup albeit a bit tailheavy. Did you add lead to the front?

With Spektrum, you want exactly the opposite. To desensitize the center, you add " + " expo. Adding " - " expo will make it more twitchy.

It is always a good idea to follow the manufacturer's recommendations when you are setting up your planes control surface throws. Like Nic said, expo is a personal preference. I have found smaller aircraft to be "twitchy". I can't imagine needing -40 or +40 expo on such a large airframe. But again it is a personal preference. Being very familiar with this plane I set mine up per the instructions using nearly 50% aileron differential. This helps the plane track through its turns without adverse yaw. Have you programmed in any aileron differential?
