Learning rudder input on slow rolls is the first step. When you say rolling circles do you mean precieion rollers or rolling harrier circles, ie 3D stuff?

Harrier rollers are a lot easier than precision rollers. Same principal, learn correct top rudder inputs first. Then change the timing of the rudder and elevator inputs to turn the model's direction as well as hold the nose up. If rolling inside (roll right, turning right) the inputs are slightly later than the would be to roll in a straight line. If rolling outside they are slightly earlier.

You have to be a member and they are under media.
I believe they call it 3d university.
