Zagi Trim Question
My ZAGI 400x tends to "balloon" with increasing speed (i.e. add power through the throttle and one needs to add additional down elevon to keep it level).
Any tips on this issue? CG placement? Engine thrust? They all do this!?

I found it hard to stop with a flying wing. I just add a little down trim when full throttle is applied. Hmmm... that means I add down trim for most of the flight until I approach for landing.
Balance a little forward does help though. I mounted the receiver back in my 400X and lengthened the battery tray forward so the battery can be moved closer towards the nose.
When I go to full throttle, I only need to give the trim about 3 clicks or level flight.
If anyone else knows better tips, please share.

Add a little down thrust to your motor with a small spacer under the front of your motor. I ended up using a piece of double sided foam tape. You'll have to play around with different thickness's, but thats what I used.
