Real planes will do the same thing if you don't use rudder.
are you saying you can program mixing ailerons and rudder on your transmitter? or manually do it like as if you were doing a knife edge?

Program mixing on the transmitter, but manually works too.

I'm redoing the landing gear set up on my EPP FPV. Now there will be one fiberglassed piece of balsa on the outside and another on the inside. I'm going to attach the metal landing gear with two or three wood screws which will go through both pieces of balsa. It should be a much stronger setup now. I also fiberglassed part of the bottom that was looking rough.

The new 4.5" tires should be good for landing on sandy dirt.

The landing gear project is finished and it looks good! I don't think I would do it again if I bought another EPP FPV. It's too much work for what should be a relatively simple plane.

I will take a few photos tomorrow, still haven't flown it though. My 5000mah 3s battery puffed up and the next biggest one is a 2600mah. I might fly it anyway just to test things out. How long should I expect the battery life to be? (Never flown down to zero with 5000). I was thinking maybe 10 minutes.

Here's my EPP FPV. I didn't feel like putting on the rubber bands for the photo.

looks nice. I suspect your large tail skid will add more vertical surface which will help with yaw stability.

Haha, maybe it has some kind of golf ball effect! Hobbyking should advertise the EPP FPV as having the ability to sand granite.
