Got a new nose made for my F-4. First flight was about 10 seconds. It pitched straight up and then went nose first into the grass. Lucky it just bent the nose and broke the wing tip. I would like to ask what your elevator throws are for this one. I balanced it at the instruction point of 165 mm from LE. I was way nose down before launch CG check. Power was good and it actually climbed a bit before it gave up. I did the hand launch and a friend was doing the first flight to get it trimmed out. Done quite few hand launches, so, don't really know aobut this one. Will try again.
