The G-wing is directionaly stable, it was only the change of the propeller / rpms that caused a "yawing" motion to be present and even when starting with the fast motor the G-wing still flies straight. It was the transition between the two different motors and old trim. I should have reset everything.
I'm still working on adverse yaw. If you watch during rolls, the aircraft sort of sucks when inverted because of the 2 degree washout I added for more stability, otherwise this airplane is difficult to fly because it is almost negatively stable when built stock.
Once I noticed when going into a vertical climb ( GT-07 ) the aircraft would start to lose stability and one of the wing tips would lead the other ( almost like an entrance to a spin )
Though the aircraft is resistant to spinning as you can see in my testing videos.
Aerodynamic and impulse testing
I really like this plane, the look from the sky.
This is a compilation of all the models
You know I never really got into full size aircraft, I know all about them mainly military aircraft but I think maybe it's the cost but I am working towards an Aerospace degree so maybe then I can mess with full size planes.

There is one bad thing about this plane. If you impart a spin on the aircraft, it can lead to an irrecoverable spin, and by irrecoverable I mean that you are so close to the ground that you will most likely crash.
Still if you make it light or have a rocket like thrust to weight ratio, there is no problem of this as you can see in the take off with the GT-16

Have you tried differential ails to take out the adverse yaw?? May work well on this plane as the upward ail adds a lot of drag in the direction you want to go.
