Paint an inch or two of the wingtips white on top and black on the bottom. (fluorescent/neon colors work too) it helps with visibility and helps identify top from bottom at a distance. I know it doesn't sound like much but it helps. As for the climbing while turning, is most likely stick control. need to focus on not moving your stick in multiple directions at once. Gentle stick movements is all it needs. also reduce speed in a turn.

Any Acrylic paint will do, if you use a spray can, keep your distance, the paint won't damage the foam, but some propellants will damage foam.
