I think it was more nose down in the knife edge...
How do I fix It or is that just cause its a "Edge"
"pulling" usually refers to up elevator as it's pulling on the stick... "pushing" being down elevator. Was your Edge pushing to the gear or pulling to the canopy?...
as Skippy says, it's a lot dependent on your CofG placement as elevator trim used to maintain normal level flight has the biggest impact. If you can move the balance forward a little it will be reduced. But if you like where the CofG is for other reasons, then simply mix it out as the next trim step.
I flew some trim flights on mine today also did a little mixing... now she's all as straight as an arrow, super nice. Actually a pretty darn awesome plane for flying nice straight lines with. As you said though, part of it being and "Edge", is the rather high wing position which does induce some need for mixing.
