Welcome to RC Groups. I am not an expert but I can suggest that you may have developed a bad warp in the wing. Look very close at the wing from straight on and from the side. if you use wood for spars on foam it is likely it warped. Temperature, sun, and moisture can attack foam also. Use of carbon fiber will generally hold a wing straighter for a longer period. I use Carbon fiber arrow shaft in all my planes. They are straight and very stiff.. This is only a starting point to look for your problems.
Next is the motor should have a degree down thrust and right thrust.
Next . Check the elevator to make sure it is truly straight. Measure from the wing tip to the elevator and the measure should be close for each tip measure. Make sure the incedance is straight on the same centerline as the wing and a line drawn from the motor centerline to the elevator line on the tail end.
Check lateral balance again to make sure one side of the wing is not heavier than the opposite side.
Maybe someone else may have more ides to check also.

You might have a slight warp in the wings. A large ruler across the wingtip at each end and then look down the wing to see if the rulers are parallel may help you check it. What you have described is not a common or known fault. Another remote possibility is that the servo may not be centreing correctly.

BTW, mine needed a little right trim to fly right, but not full trim

thanks for the help.
the problem was cambered foam at elevator .
Now with little trimming it flies nice.
tired of belly landings, I gave it floats.

Thanks for the wonderful plans. I hope to get started on m build in a week or so. Newbie at building, but with the cheap price of foam, thought I would give it a shot.
on a side note, to the gentleman with the zip questions, if you don't want to download a program, just use windows internet explorer. if you have the latest version it should unzip it for you, that's what I use. hope that helps you some.
again thanks for taking the time to post the plans, and tutorial on the build.

I've been helping a buddy build one for a trainer. He has done some flying on his own and this plane should help him along with building flying skills quite well. I'll take some pics next build sesion
