@Rednas i seen a problem before you even launched. The tailplane was twisting just by the wind.

This gives a very spongey and unpredictable flight. One problem is you have a very long 'moment arm'. This is the rear length of the fuselage, if you shorten it, it will be much less twisty. Also consider glueing some carbon flat bar to the sides of the fusealge to stiffen.

As Ant0 said, your rudder is on the small side, this would also give it the wandery vague flight. Note especially tied in with a twisting tail.
