Still sounds like something is wrong though. A misalignment somewhere or improper incidence if the balance is right! Mine balances at 2.675" from the LE which is exactly in the middle of the recommended range, and it has maybe two clicks of up trim; only visible if you put a straight edge across the top of the horizontal stab! It flies hands-off at this setting and climbs gently at full throttle, just as it should.
