Two flights today - CofG just behind mainspar. Checked current draw with fitted 9x5 prop - over 30amps, so propped down to 7x4 apc-e for 28 amps. Took off, nose came up, and kept coming up - settled into a very dodgy half circuit very twitchy and node high. Down in one piece. Replaced 2300mah 3s1p pack with 3000mah 3s1p and a chunk of lead. Balanced on mainspar. Took off, nose came up, and kept on coming up. Landed in outfield, no damage save a broken prop.
