Yesterday I maidened a much smaller, 8lb ProJet A-10. I did what I thought were high speed taxi passes, and had the same feeling as you do now. When I finally decided to take off, it used the entire runway. I finally forced it into the air at the end of the runway. A combination of forward CG and elevator trim. Once in the air, with enough (a lot!) of trim-- and she flew beautifully, at about 2/3 throttle.
