The question is, with an auto-pilot forcing the wings level, how effective would rudder only steering be. I'm guessing not all that effective, but at R/C scales is it effective enough to control heading and self navigate?

It would give you a very rough, slightly slipping turn, I'd think. There'd be a risk of a snap roll (and possible spin) at slower speeds, if you got to the point that one of the wings stalled.

All the best,
