Two flights today - CofG just behind mainspar. Checked current draw with fitted 9x5 prop - over 30amps, so propped down to 7x4 apc-e for 28 amps. Took off, nose came up, and kept coming up - settled into a very dodgy half circuit very twitchy and node high. Down in one piece. Replaced 2300mah 3s1p pack with 3000mah 3s1p and a chunk of lead. Balanced on mainspar. Took off, nose came up, and kept on coming up. Landed in outfield, no damage save a broken prop.

In the pic it has a bit of 'up' on the elevator.
Is that the way it was when you were trying to fly it? If so, there's your answer.

That's just how she was sat on the ground for getting her picture taken. All the controls were fully checked out in the pre-flight and there wasn't any up trim. Thanks for the observation though.
