I wish I had this explanation for the LG last year. I had done what you wrote, put the gear too far back on a home built. When it came to the first flight. Had to get stupid speed before it rotated. Then all of a sudden it popped off the ground. Then I over corrected and slammed into the ground. Took all of 2 seconds. After repairing I couldn`t figure out what went wrong. Then looked at a real plane then noticed where the gear was. Moved mine just behind Cg. Next first flight it lifted nice and slow, Lesson learned Thanks
