"Hi @Jose,
I had a VERY similar problem to you last week. Especially with the difference between the aircraft having a very aggressive right-hand turn and a very slow left-hand turn. I posted about it here.
The problem ended up being that I had a…"

"Hi everyone, 
I flew my skywalker again yesterday, and it turned out a reversed rudder was indeed the problem. I didn't pick it up in my preflight checklist as my rc controller was moving the rudder in the correct direction. It seems that the rudder…"
