The reason we don't want our planes tail heavy is because
it will tent to make the wing stall at slow settings. Stall = crash if too close
to the ground to recover.

Rather than trying to go inverted with the ailerons, why not try
adding power and doing a half-loop. Just cut the power on top
and feed in some down elevator to maintain the inverted flight.

I'm just guessing but did you mix aileron and rudder together?

If you sere able, you could plug the rudder servo into the aileron socket
but I don't think you can do that here.

cg stnds for center of gravity.
It is where the plane should balance with all the gear (radio, batteries) in it.

If it's out of balance, it won't fly right.

If your radio supports it, just mix the control for the camera with the Ailerons.
You might have to reverse the direction on the camera but that's no biggie.
