Trouble with Harriers

I'm flying a EG MX-2 30%. been doing elevators and hovering but trouble with turns during harriers.
I can do it just fine on the Simulator and compensate with aileron but at the field I can give it rudder then more rudder without response then all at once it acts like its too much rudder especially turning right. Does this plane have issues or is there something I'm missing?

Are you using a lot of expo? If so, bump it down a bit, an on/off switch-like expo setting makes for a tough bird to fly

I have found some planes need a little power added when turning in a harrier.

Thanks for the tips guy's.
Not that much, expo is at 35 with the rate at 100. I could try less rate and no expo and I'll also try a bit more power in the turns.

Tried it again today and found that a little boost of throttle helped and also learned that I wasn't using enough opposite aileron to correct on banking.

thanks again

Glad you figured it out. Also if your plane has SFG's put them on. They really help clean up the plane in post stall flight. If your plane does not have any SFG's I would suggest you make some for it as they help a lot.

Lots of good advice there, I always add some power in the turn n u need to use opp. aileron Ur expo sounds fine, though I run almost double that on full rates. Good luck!
