Yeah mine was twitchy first flight; but I needed a lot of down elevator.
In the photo it seems the stab may not be quite parallel to wings,though the pic is a hair off straight on.
+1 from here on both points.

You also need to remember that LiPos make nose dive when you reach approx 30% - you'll have a disaster waiting to happen. So it can become a loose-loose situation (unless you enjoy frequent repairing)

Enjoy flying

Cheers
