Check your CG first, I had to add weight using 2200mAh and washers removed, to counter extra CF rods along fuse and in tail.
I was using a elevator mix, but it is not perfect, when no power is on but speed is high (ie any sort of dive) it will pitch up still. Also, advance the throttle smoothly, don't bang it to the stop instantly.
Stock thrust angle should be fine, mine was once I rebalanced CG. (balances on front edge of CF tube cover on wing)
