Are you using a bigger LiPo then recommended?
If yes you could simply be more nose heavy.
If not check the incidence of the stab to the thrust line, but I dont see this to be the case the way the stab is installed.

Thanks,
however, since my first CAP plane was my FMS Cessna lettered as a WV CAP plane, and since my sis is a Major in the WV Chapter of the CAP, I think I better stick with the WV patch on a hat.
It looks like this will be the only flying day for a while. Glad I got in a couple of flights.

Very starnge then.
If the Battery is in the place where its supose to be then you should be ok.
Now if all the control surfaces are at neutral then its an incidence problem.
Take a look at the flaps and ailerons too just in case they are up a bit sort of like spoilers, that would make you dive too.
Just a tought

The Turnigy batteries weigh some 15 gr. more than other batteries of the same size, but it shouldn't be of importance (?)

No, I took them off. Once I realized there was only one screw to remove I felt safer taking them off - just in case.

See my previous post. Also, if you search my posts, you will find pics of my various mods.

Dr.JJ - I'm waiting for one to come in (back ordered). Tower Hobbies is expecting in a shipment (Tx ready) in about two weeks and the (RTF) towards the end of February. If you want one you may want to back order it through them or maybe through your LHS! ~ Robin
