First off the rudder is on the left stick
. That'll take a while to adapt. Also the right stick (was once your rudder turn stick) is now your aileron stick. When turning originally you would hold the rudder all the way. But now that'll cause a roll, so you bank a few degrees and control the turn by adding elevator and ailerons at the same time (similar to before, the rudder can be used to smooth out the turn, but turning just with the rudder doesn't work that well). Remember an airplane is turned by banking, the rudder is not like a steering wheel (unless you have a 3D aircraft, in that case yes the rudder will pivot your airplane around like the rudder of a boat). Good luck! (fly high when practicing new maneuvers.)
