Hmm, I've built 2 different sized stick planes using a carbon fiber tube fuse and they both fly awesome! What size carbon tube are you using? I built a small one of Gene Bond's BluStik with a 4mm carbon tube fuse, and a large 40" span stik using a 6mm carbon arrow shaft. Maybe your problem has to do with the foam flexing... you used 2mm depron on this one, what size foam did you use on the gym-blu? I built a gym-blu using 3mm sliced blue foam and it was too flimsy to fly. The wing warping was soo bad immediately after take off it would go crazy and snap into the ground.
