Try a higher aoa in harrier, or perhaps your motor has too high of a kv rating. What motor and batt are you running. You might also try a lighter batt.

I had the Extra 330 from Electrifly and that thing wouldn't slow down either. A lighter battery may help, but probably not enough. Flaperons will help, but may make the plane so squirrely you can't fly it. Good luck whatever you try.
