Knock, knock, knock.....any body home?

Just read thru the flying posts again and I'm thinking that you might have been suffering from a too aft CG.

I like to start flying testing by taping on way too much nose weight, so that full up elevator barely brings the nose up. It will be stable in pitch, but a pig to fly. Then remove some nose weight little by little until you notice that the elevator is becoming more responsive. It should still be pitch stable. Keep removing nose weight until it looks like you are a beginner pilot and the plane is jumping around in pitch.

I like doing this because the pitch stable version is fresh in your mind.
