It's not quite the same. Flight stabilizers are something like the AS3X, which doesn't actually making flying easier, but reduces the effects of wind, so a smaller, lighter airframe can be flown in a...

Make sure to give the rudder lots of throw. With the lack of dihedral you may need it. Good throw on ailerons may help to. Of course add expo, but having high max throws could help if you find you...
