Hobbyking FW190

I have recently purchased the HK FW190. on the maiden everything went well untill i raised the wheels, at this point the trim changed massively and the model dived for the ground.
I managed to hold full up elevator and somehow flick the retract switch and order was restored.
The wheels appear to move up and down along a straight path so i dont believe the CofG moves.
Has anyone else experienced the same thing?

Sounds like the drag is quite hard with the gear down, and decreases severly once retracted. Yo should check the COG with the gear down versus retracted and see if a major differnace. Also make sure your battery is not shifting.
Did you balance it upside down, with the gear down?
