I am with Joe, add some washers and see how it feels. If you are still pulling back on the elevator then move the CG rearwards.
If you do both at once it may want to pitch up on take off, try one thing at a time.


Oh yeh....It looks great! nice work

Here's the second flight with the gearbox shimmed back with some washers....a totally different beast!

Nice guys! I shimed it. I also shimed it on the right so that i can subtract all the left trim it needed at maiden.

I also should balance the rotor. Tips?
