Need help with FFF design- KE fix?

I've been working on a FFF Curtiss P6 in AutoCAD and have build the test model. It flies just the way I wanted, as a parkflyer that will hover with good control authority, fly inverted hands off and still putt around slowly.
Currently setup with a 2015 4100, a D box with a 9 tooth pinion and a 12X6 APC prop on 3S Etec 1200s.
I'm not a great pilot by any stretch, but the only thing I would like to improve is a tuck during knife edge. I have to maintain a bit of up elevator to keep it on track. What can I change in the design to help?
All advice appreciated!
Wayne

How about leaning the rudder hinge line back a bit?
