Help!
showtime 4d wing rocks - HELP!!!

hi guys!

this is my 1st ic plane so u could say im abit of a newbie to this kind of model!

i got my showtime 4d a month ago and im having alot of trouble with the wing rocking when i go into a harrier or prop hang.

im using a saito 125 engine with 17/6 apc prop running 15% cool power fuel.

ive tried putting some weights on the back of plane to move c of g further back, but this didnt help much (is this a good way of reducing wing rock?)

i would really be grateful if u guys could offer any help on this matter!

bye guys!

I had a little bit of that problum with my Funtana 90 but i put some up aliron when there is up elevator. so i basically mixed spoilorons to the elevator. I have found that this helps more then flaps. But any way you try it do it a little at a time.
