    Sensei has it exactly. No two planes nor two pilots are the same. Start at 30 expo and fly if you like it leave it. Still too sensitive more expo. Fly again repeat until you're happy

    Is this airplane green gray and white? If so it was never built with dihedral. Cutting the wing in two would be a pain. Dihedral isn't going to help that much. But if you must I think you'd be better...

    Are both aileron servos the same brand and same part number? You mentioned flaps I'm assuming you mean the aileron and not some flaperon mix. Have you checked to see if you have a mix set by mistake
