A whacky solution but there's a lot of ways to skin a cat... O course the cat is stil dead:-(

All you had to do was drop the throttle to just above half the give a smooth firm nose slightly up toss. The prop wash causes a lot of turbulence at the leading edge near the fuse that puts a lot of down force there until the wing has some airspeed and that wash can disapate. It's common on many airplanes but not usually noticeable. (If it had gear on it you'd see the tires flatten some).
There's a simple device to stop it but really not that big of a deal if you understand what is causing it.
One post thought it was motor "down thrust angle" but that wilould cause the model to pitch nose down when throttle was applied.
Not sure why 46mm seemed a good place
To start ... Set the model at the 40mm then move back while dialing down throws using your Dual Rate switches. You paid money for the might as well put them to work:-)
