Just as a little experiment I decided to built my first livingroomstick.

The weight is 0,48 grams. Had some test flights that gave a lot of problems. Then decided to cut off about 40% of the area of the prop blades and used a thinner piece of rubber. After these changes the model flew a lot more stable. The model flies in quite large circles so my living room is too small. Next step is to get it flying in a hall and see what the model will do.

Bernard,

You should be able to tune your LR Stick to make much smaller circles. 

Bend your prop hangar so that you add some left thrust.  This will tighten the circle, especially earlier in the motor run. Lick your fingers and dampen the tail boom, then twist it to add more stab tilt.  This will help more later in the motor run.  Adjust them both so you get about the same size circle early as late, start with the left thrust.

After tightening the circle, you may need to re-adjust wing twist.

There are others here who understand this much better than I do but since you hadn't received an answer yet ...
