It's to do with the rotation of the prop, the prop is aiding in the right turn but defeating the left, similar to prop walk on a boat. Only way to correct this issue is larger rudders, or increase the rudder throw so left becomes more responsive.

On a side note a single central rudder would work better and directing air throw, or setting up larger rudders to the outer edgers of the blade creating a funnel effect allowing the thrust to be directed better.

thanks for that it had me puzzeld
i will fit some bigger rudders on it this week end
at the moment the throw on both rudders in either direction is about 40degs
so i will have to reduce the right turn a little
thanks Very Happy
