Should help, also at this point you should be able to dial it down a little more at a time without sacrificing too much resolution just by adjusting your rate. This way you can get it to the point of max deflection before any blowback just with radio adjustment to see if a lower rate helps. Once you find that point then you can adjust the mechanical connection to regain all your resolution. It's kind of a slow process but once it's done, it works so nice. This is the process I use on all my planes for all the surfaces doing one control surface @ a time. On most of my planes it usually takes about 40-50 flights to really get them dialed in, but once you find that sweet spot it just makes flying so much more enjoyable and almost effortless.

Nice job on the decals... I like decals. A lot of guys don't like to dress up their planes, but I'm a 'We Need More Cow Bell" type of guy.

The cg, I'm not quite sure yet as haven't fine tuned the balance, but, my batt is about 1 to 3/4" in front of tube and my 85A ztw esc is just on the fuse side of the fire wall under the batt tray.
