I can't really remember, but I can picture it 'yawing down' too. And would expect it to (thinking about it). Though, what amount is normal or not....

If you did nothing to correct it, it would just go more and more towards vertical (ultimately). So to get to that it had to yaw. A slower 'linear' yaw, or a more sudden dramatic one that goes beyond 'linear'? I guess that would depend on the amount of turn radius and banking, and the aircraft wing design too. All aircraft could be 'corrected' (elevator) - whether real-time, or after the fact - but how much you need, or how soon etc, could vary.

If a fin was mis-aligned, even by a small amount, you will know pretty soon! And would have trimmed it out too, whether correctly with rudder, or incorrectly with aileron. But you should have recognised a specific direction issue quite soon, and thus would associate further 'odd' flight moves to that, as applicable.
So I don't think it is that.

I think it sounds more like it is notably nose heavy.....
And some aircraft are probably more sensitive to that than others too - thus a more dramatic result of its influences/consequences.
Could it be the Dreaded Saber dance ?

Has any body hooked the airlerons and the tail plane together mechanicly on this bird? I have an f22 that way and it flys amazing you just set the radio up as a delta ? I personaly dont think the wing would work this way given the shape of it I was just curious if any body here was crazy enough to try it ?

I've set up several planes like this - Since I use Futaba radios what I do is use an aileron to elevator slave where you have the elevators on two channels and they get a percentage of aileron slave mixed into normal elevator commands too. Tailerons work great but even better if you use ailerons also - that way the roll command on the elevators are smaller and more efficient. It will allow smaller control movements hence a more efficient method of control but it is a lot more finiky to set up. Not really a good idea for the guys just looking to fly. But for those looking to learn something new about stability and control, or to optimize a setup, it's a viable option.

Looks great! At first I thought you were talking about using a spring to attach his head and I had to chuckle at the image of a head bouncing/wagging pilot figurine but then I realized you were talking about the O2 mask hose..

Neat idea. I'm sure there is a way to do it relatively hassle free if you mod both canopies enough... settle on a decent attach method, some good hardware, some elbow grease..
