If you're experiencing swift pitch changes,I'd suggest adding some expo, actually reducing the throw (low rates),or adding some nose weight.

I have settled down some 'bears' to a gentler landing speed by adding nose weight....the nose heaviness requires a little up elevator at slower speeds,which increases the angle of attack and slows down the aircraft..

My favorite test is to "land" at 400' slow her down,adjust the throttle to just keep it from stalling,and apply up until it does. Any horrible tendencies will be revealed at a safe altitude.
