What will happen when an aircraft is rolled right and yawed left at the same time?


Roll and yaw are interconnected. You can't turn the plane without doing both at the same time: you'll yaw right and roll right, or you'll yaw left and roll left. It's impossible to roll one way and yaw the other at the same time. You'd stall the plane by trying.
