Pretty much all planes will roll and dive under full rudder, it's a normal condition. What zero coupling means is that in ke flight with the proper amount of rudder being used to maintain ke flight that there will be no roll coupling. In other words, take it easy on the rudder, just part of learning how to fly. This is where using a lot of expo on the rudder comes into play, it allows you to finesse the rudder input at low deflection angles without sacrificing the large amounts of deflection needed in post stall flight when just stick banging around. It all just takes practice and patience. As far as props, buy them ten at a time, balance them, and I like to go to home depot and buy the O-rings in the plumbing repair dept for the prop saver. A good source for cheap props and reasonable shipping cost is rcplanebuilder.com.
