Add elevator to push the plane right or left

That is what I M "thinking ". About The upright and inverted happen of course but I just don't really think about that. I am paying attention to timing everything off KE position
I also time them on the KE position. For long I've flown rolling harriers using only the rudder and only recently started adding bits of elevator. There are probably plenty of down sides to doing it this way, but it has forced me to add the "up" direction smoothly and not just yank the stick. As the other guys have said, fly the plane through the rolling harrier. Also make sure your rudder servo is up to the job - the plane spirals hard into the ground when the rudder servo strips in flight.

I'd also suggest slowing down the plane's roll rate during early attempts to learn the rolling harrier. Many 3D planes are obviously designed to be agile, and that includes rolling at a fast rate which may make it difficult for a relative newbie to concentrate on proper technique with 4-point rolls and rolling circles.

Low rates on ailerons can help. It's easy to "speed things up" by increasing the rate as experience grows.

Not impressed
I done that plenty of times running off the end of the runway but at least I take the time to clean it off before flying again.

I like the violent stuff!
I'm impressed. I fly with a guy who's on the staff over at the Flying Giants site. We call him "dances with weeds." Always got stuff dragging from his plane.

I think I took that shot. LOL
I have lots of pix from FLI and some great Wamsy shots... let me know if you (wam) want them.

Tutorials after the King 50, buddy?
You concentrate on practice n stuff until then. Don't worry about rushing that unfinished tutorial up unless somehow you get the time. Haha. I love referring people to your work.

That happened while flying (low) - he had not yet landed when that shot was taken. I've got the video of his flight posted on my youtube account.

The comment "not impressed" was a joke as I thought indicated by the and then followed up by a joke of running off the runway catching grass and not cleaning it off. I have seem Wamsy fly and I am always impressed with his skills.
