Dont slow it down too much on landings , it actually need some power on landing if you have no flaps on yours.
Just do it a bit at a time.
Also make sure that both your ailerons are up slightly to give some washout.

Lowers your stall speed reduces the tip stall, but you can only do it a bit

How do you determine how much up aileron to add? Does this adjustment work for all planes?

Cant really say it works on all planes but it does work a bit.
I dont do it as it also increases drag , if you add too much it wont be too good.Just slide your batt back a bit at a time and see how much trim you need and eventually it will be perfect.

GoPro Hero 3 silver edition, the Icon carries it quite well. The quality of the video is awesome and the camera floats too!
