Elevator Maneuver

Hi guys,
I have a Pilot Yak-54 107" when I do the elevator maneuver the airplane goes into the elevator position nose up wings leveled and loosing altitude then few seconds later the airplane has the tendency of veering right. Accordingly with me I got the correct right thrust.

What else could it be?

Cheers.

Assuming both wings weight the same, mix in a tic of up left aileron when you input only full up elevator. Sounds like the right wing is staling before the left, so introducing a little pre-stall in the left wing may help.

Maybe a hair too much up elevator?

That stick on the right. Move it from side to side to keep wings level. ��

Use a little left rudder? That's what I do...

Hi Guys,
May be is too much up elevator and may be that's the reason why is doing that.

I tried to compensate with rudder but it I lost control of the airplane faster. I haven't tried to use ailerons for compensate this tendency.

A friend of mine tried to do the maneuver and he said that the airplane shouldn't do that.

I will try Scott's suggestion may be with a little bit of mix would do the trick.

I will keep you posted

Thank you very much for your inputs.

Cheers!!
