Your getting close
This is where the experience shines through, when it starts climbing too fast an experienced pilot would quickly level it, point it slightly down so it don't stall, regain speed and then take it up slowly. It all happens pretty fast for a beginner.
Maybe it's set up okay, let it climb out with power and stay off the elevator as it sounds like you may have over controlled with the elevator. Patience may be needed as throttle/power will make it climb without forcing it up with elevator.
Let us know how it goes with these tips.
